ARTIST BIO: Why beautiful things are beautiful? Why the border of beauty differs by the time and by the people? I have a strong interest especially in women’s beauty, since when I was in college. that was my episode to make me start working on beauty and that make me lead to start as an artist. No matter how the times are, beauty is a theme that has strong interest around the world. For example, Japan has traditional art called “Bijinga” (Japanese traditional technique to draw beautiful women)since early time. I want to challenge to the beauty that has universal appeal beyond the time.

I use mechanical pencil and pastel for drawing. I’ve been thinking that although mechanical pencil is low price item, there is possibility to make valuable art from it. I want to break the stereotype and show some kind of possibilities like the Apollo 13 which landed to the moon and the Wright brothers who succeeded in the first-ever manned,self-propelled flight in the U.S.

I have been wondering what is wealth in life.My answer will be to live a full life. If you just repeat doing the same thing everyday, I don’t think that life is happy. That’s why people play sports and games make there life exciting. Art can make peoples life enjoyable too.It will be my pleasure if I can make some kind of motivator not just in art but another music,sports and fashion to the people who see my art. I want it to be an artist who can give a slight motivation to the people who see my art.
