Artist                                               

Born in 1981 Gifu Prefecture, Japan.
At the age of twenty, he moved to California, U.S.A. to pursue an art career. He spent four years in the Bay area doing live painting and participating in both solo exhibitions and art events. While living in San Francisco, he discovered a small group of avid bicyclists and became a bike messenger. It was through his experience as a courier that he found his essence of life and the conceptual basis for his art.
In 2006, he returned to Japan. Initially he lived in Tokyo, where he continued to work as a messenger and became involved in the bicycle industry. He eventually relocated to Kariya City for two and a half years to focus on his artistic and business endeavors. In 2010, he spent eight months in Tochigi and afterward returned to Tokyo, where he is currently based. He is involved in art curating, graphic design, company/collaborative projects, and continues to exhibit his artwork worldwide.

    Recently I produced a logo and their signboard design for NUMBER which is a sports bar and art gallery place in TOCHIGI, NASU-SHIOBARA.

    As some people know that NASU is the place that JAPANESE emperor sometimes to visit to take a rest… It has a lot of good hot springs around.

    When you visit Japan and also going to TOCHIGI, please visit here.

    Feb 13th, I was invited to Hennessy x Futura’s event as on an artist list and I had so much fun drinking forever till ending. Before Mr. Fu left, I was able to talk about the art show we had together in Fukuoka, 2008. I was glad that he remembered everything. Anyways, what the most amazing moment was “talking to DJ KRUSH, taking a pic with DJ KRUSH, having his autograph for my wife.” Amazing.

    By the way, me and Hennessy story? yeah i have. When I was doing a courier in SF, especially in a cold rainy winter season, we all staying at some places that didn’t hit any rain drops and drinking an old Hennessy and warm ourselves up. Hennessy reminded of my good old hard days.

    I used to bomb this kinda shit in the U.S. and here in JAPAN everywhere I go and deliver a pack as a messenger, but after I quit being a courier, I completely stopped doing this. In 2013, my new year, my new start, finally I bring my ass back onto a street and birthing my new creatures out of my butt-hole.

    Enjoy my shit.
