Traditional Japanese Art | Contemporary   (VIC)
 
I am a Japanese contemporary artist currently with an artistic practice in Melbourne. My university under graduate studies at Tama Art University, Tokyo was in traditional Japanese print making. This was followed by completing a master of fine art at Aichi Prefectural Art University, Nagoya making contemporary art using a combination of traditional Japanese materials and techniques.

After graduation I established an art practice in Niigata prefecture exhibiting in Tokyo, Nagoya and Niigata as well as in numerous overseas group exhibitions. At this same time I also participated in overseas artist-in-residency and teaching projects in Japan, Mexico, Spain and Kenya.

Since 2009 I have established a studio practice in Melbourne that combines both my experiences in Japan and Australia to make new and innovative mixed media art work.
