I have worked on as the broadcasting writer and director for about thirty long years in Tokyo JAPAN.In the course of the years, I have been interested in Japanfs original and traditional color that is an UKIYOE print, paper made by Japanese original technique = WASHI, and Japanfs own design gMONYOUh= pattern.
I think that MONYOU is the best cultural ambassador. Because MONYOU developed while coming and going many times between the Orient and the Occident . While it was long times, MONYOU was only handling as a part of the decoration art. However, they are different. I think that MONYOU may be formed as a new concept in a field of the contemporary art. Then, I tried to make own cutting artworks 2003. I began an act to dye Japanese traditional paper gWASHIh in various original colors. To draw an original pattern on the WASHI and cut it. To layer the WASHI which cut the MONYOU on several levels. When I dye a WASHI, I image a cloud. It may be skies or may be the ore. When I design the MONYOU, I am conscious of Japonisme. When I cut the WASHI, I centralize all nerve in the point of a sword of the design cutter.
By the way, I may let MONYOU and Japanese Calligraphy fuse. It is a concept with Japanfs original taste that nobody does.
It is the work that is very interesting for me even if take anything. I need various technique and much time for production. However, time of all gives me imaginary joy. I believe my intuitive power and produce it.
Finally, letfs introduce art supplies using. I use Japanese traditional materials. For example, gold and silver leaf, gold and silver sands, mica, Indian-ink = SUMI, chalk = GOHUN, natural mineral pigments = IWAENOGU and water ink.
Please enjoy my artworks.
