​What is art? I started painting in about 2000 AD. I have no art education in painting. Instead, I studied physical expression at the Papa Tarahumara Performing Arts Company's Institute. After that, I held painting exhibitions around Japan. All my life, I have been living by selling paintings and doing physical expression.

I live in the Yatsugatake mountain area. Every day I go to the forests and valleys. I see deer visiting my garden, foxes, raccoons, and owls.

Moths, caterpillars and bees are also beautiful.

Before I became  a painter, I was a social worker for mentally ill patients. What is mental illness? What is the spirit? What is the true nature of people?

I love people, I love nature, I love mountains and rivers, but also cities.

What is true harmony?

I just keep painting and dancing.
