What drives you?

This world is full of colors and different peoples with the same basic needs. I just try to re-create it as I see it.

Where do you get your inspiration?

As mentioned earlier, my biggest inspiration was my father. I have also traveled around the world. People, from different cultures and social struggles inspires me.

Where do you see your art going in ten years?

I very recently started organizing my art. I was busy with my own business in Tokyo earlier. I would be participating in and exploring the art scene for a few years. In ten years would like to see me as an established artist.


I know my artwork is finished when...?
Artwork is never "finished" as professional learners.This continuous learning makes it challenging and hence interesting.

Can you tell us what your 'Before I Die' is?
Never stop seeking for creativity. Seek truth even beyond your most cherished convictions. Never, never stop!
