Inside the Artist’s Studio Documentary

Dadaism, Bauhaus and Gutai philosophies gave me a strong impression for my forming years. It became solid core for my art making direction. 

I like to use unconventional materials and waste materials especially for installation works.

My choice of materials and interpretation are influenced by the differences that I experience between life in America and Japan where I grew up. 

I work in large and small scales in belief of intimacy, they are my American diary in visual forms. I came to US/New York City in1962 from Tokyo, Japan.
