In this exhibition I put various effects on the photographs, such as making equivalent of printing plates with the printer for about three times, printing on Japanese traditional paper and some I have painted on the top of print, Also I have an old props which used to belong to my grandfather and there are many antique objects from my room. I have painted these objects freely and these are other series of my work. My art is about expressing the world how I see them through my eyes.   

 

It is the first exhibition I ever held outside of Japan.  I hope people will see, feel and have emotions towards my art creations.
