I have been continuing my creative artistic activities in both Japan and abroad, produced over 5000 artworks, including 2 murals of 14.5 meter wide x 4.5 meter high, posters and CD jackets, etc. I received various winning prizes. Recent awards were : In 2019, Finalist Award of ” 2018 Artist of the year” by the CFA Circle Foundation for the Arts, in France and published on Spotlight Magazine. In 2017, “Celeste Prize 2017” in Italy. In 2015, Award from “Piet Mondrian's 100th Anniversary International Competition” in the Netherlands.
People look at my art and told me the followings:
"Look simple but, I don't know how they are to be beautiful and amazing art working. Its result is so impressive. Genuine idea and great job. " " Beyond imagination. Really brilliant. " " The more I see the more I appreciate" " Imaginative and branded." " Your expression is touching me. Make me happy.” " The impact was so great that it made me feel wonderful." " It's in motion! You've actually captured something that normally stays in its place, yet you somehow gave it movement, the clouds, the water, the wind, fantastic!! " " Beautiful, unique! Yea. I like it comes from the heart and soul. "" I will be sucked in while I am watching Pipit’s art.” " It’s a gift you have. " " Healing" “ I have never seen such an artwork " "Pipit's pictures are contained of the mind/spirit." ”I think you have a nice style. You show in your pictures what your soul have seen.” " Lines and combination of colors have an aesthetic sense" " Pipit is born to be an artist. " and more.
Why are such pictures born? There are painters who draw with the aesthetic sensitivity of the childhood like Kiyoshi Yamashita & Henri Rousseau. Their sensitivities are not disturbed by their knowledges. They express emotion freely like children. My art was born from the feeling squeezed out from my soul, after Japanese characters and mother nature overlapped and collaborated, as the soul beats. A few spiritual people told that I am a soul painter.
My favorite artists are Joan Milo , Wassiy Kandinsky, Jean-Michel Basquiat. They are painters who draws not as a type but with the sensitivity of a children's pure mind. Their Knowledge does not disturb the sensitivity, and they express sensitivity in freedom without disturbing sensitivity. I feel that they express their art from their souls. Great nature always influences my art, and I create my art from the beat of the soul.
My favorite thing to do as a child was to draw pictures. My childhood dream was to become a wizard. I realize now that the dream came true in my art world because I am, like a wizard, freely making, mixing and creating magical worlds in my work.
While living in New York city, I had the opportunity to make 5 sole exhibitions, and I received 3 awards. I made a dozen of sole exhibition in Tokyo, Osaka and Fukuoka.
Every year I travel France, Italy, Mediterranean area. In 2018 I stayed in Rome, city of my previous life. The memory of the soul was revived. Summer in 2017, I was in Aix en Provence, place of the Modern art's father Paul Cezanne. I feel genuine artistic sensitivity in this town as a holy ground of the artist. I created my new type of artworks. I enjoy making my works with artistic sense. I travel around Japan by my camping car to create my artwork.
I always create when I am in a zone; I must feel the pulse of my soul – I call it ‘pulse-ism’.
