Through local culture and energy of atmosphere, I create a poetic symphony composed of images, colours and harmony, which is a perfect fusion between nature, music and art.
The works will also be inspired by local culture and atmosphere. I read the unique air, consciousness of the energy and climate of the land. Then, I turn those into work.
Sound connects my hearing and sight, and it paints my mind colorfully. I want to make viewers of my work feel as if they were listening to music.

My work is based on Mozart’s music.
If Mozart is the one who composes music to link the terrestrial world to the celestial world, I am the one who undertakes him to propagate it with my painting. If Beethoven is the one who composes music to surpass philosophy, I am the one who gives it a shape with my paintings.

J・S・Bach is the old testament Bible of classical music.
