It was my pleasure having donated my work to Barbican Ball 2016. I couldn’t attend the ball as my solo show opening with Hooligan Art Dealer was on the same day. But probably next year, I will!!!
I also received a lovely message from the winner of my work. How sweet, I must be a happy artist!
My upcoming solo show “Bigger is Brighter” is starting in two weeks! Something special is happening at the private view, so if you are in London, please come and join the party!
Ahead of this show, “Limited Edition Prints” are also available. Please contact Hooligan Art Dealer for more details.

I have been painting flowers in my work a lot throughout the years.
The flowers have been used in various ways as if they are personified showing the emotional ups and downs and they are also depicted as metaphorical expressions relating to life itself from birth to death by the changes of their appearances.
I could say the idea came from Japanese traditional thoughts such as feeling hope from full bloom or fragility from fallen flowers, however, I surely feel this idea is coming from my deep heart too.
Following this strong feeling, I never make sketches of actual flowers for a specific work.
This is not something about real flowers, this is about “flowers in my mind”.
Welcome to my new website!
Hoping you enjoy looking through my works here.
I will be posting news from my studio, and of course details for my events/exhibitions/collaboration projects.
