He was born in a country town in Miyagi, Japan, in1982. When he was a child, he used to collect crystals in mountains, and catch fishes, He spent his childhood in such a basin where has been rich in nature. He liked handcraft, science, and especially he loved drawing. Then also it affected him that he had been grown under the influence of animations, cartoons and video games as well as same age boys in Japan.
In 2000, He moved to Tokyo. He got a job as an animator after he studied 2 years.
However he quit in a little while because of low salary, unpaid wages and hard labor. He got into debt at that time, and be in a repayment period for a while. After he paid off all his debt, He got a desire to draw something different illustration drown by him ever. He started creation with unique materials like oil colors, acrylic colors, india ink, gold and silver and so on. On the other hand, he’s gotten a job in funerals services.

Therefore his drawing has silence and a viewpoint of onlooker. It dose not declare either “LOVE” or “LIFE”. Even though his works includes human lives, life cycles, time flowing, and also death. Then he just looks them on his canvases. Everything of objects (even time and space) are there. But, This is it. That is all. It is common to the attitude of Japanese animism. It is not Resignation. It is Understanding. We are born in this world, living in this world, and die in this world. We are just them. Such expressions based on loneliness and silence looks on the passage of time.

He works on Illustration, designing of signboard, visual arts, Japanese handcrafted envelopes. He has been drawing a illustration a day since 2007 as his own lifework. It amounted to 2300 pieces in 2015. He is planning 10,000 illustration exhibition in 2036.
