2. Tell us about your aesthetic.

Under the slogan of β€œJoy of Imagination”, I’m drawing and making things by adding imagination to everyday life and objects. I like putting small and little things you can imagine in everyday life into drawings.

3. What is your favourite medium and why?

I like to use mixed media. Usually, I’d add a hand-drawn texture (watercolor, coloring pencils, etc.) to digital work (photoshop, iPad). Overall, I will create a detailed drawing and create a more varied texture and feel of hand-drawing.

4. What is your artistic process like?

My work is intuitive. I might try and make up a fun story based on a real-life experience, or reform a doodle I have done. Or I’d listen to a piece of music and think deeply about my emotions or look at direct and indirect photo studies.

5. Who and/or what inspires your work?

My inspiration comes from fun and interesting expressions, various stories and photos that toe the boundary of reality and imagination. I’ve recently travelled, so my current inspiration is the natural world.

6. What role does art play in your life? How does it change the way you view the world?

I think it is the best medium for communicating what I want to express in its most true form.

7. Where did you study?

I majored in visual design at university. After graduation, I learned a lot about design-related things.

I want to continue drawing. I hope to work harder and have better performance.

10. What do you hope to achieve with your art?

I want my work to be used in various media, like storybooks, illustrations and stationaries. It’d be amazing if my work makes someone feel something. I want to spread goodness in this world, like empathy, fun and consolation.

11. Now, tell us a little more about you as a person: what is your favourite food?

I have so many food that I love… It’d be cruel to make me choose! I like eating things that work well with each other. For example, pork cutlet and spicy noodles, or a combination of sweet dessert and bitter americano!! Of course, what the food tastes like is important, but I think I focus more on who I eat it with and what I’m feeling as I’m eating the food. That, in my opinion, defines the experience and memory of eating that food.

12. Favourite book?

I personally like storybooks and independent publications. Because I feel like those types of writing have escaped a set cast and proceeded to express itself.

13. Favourite genre of music?

R & B souls, jazz and other melodies prefer good sensational songs and listen to music that fits the mood.

Listen to your favorite music, go to the cafe and drink coffee, eat delicious food, watch Netflix, etc…

15. If you weren’t an artist, what would you be?

Had I chosen something that was not drawing, I think I would’ve returned to do this in the end. This is something I could focus the most on, and this is something that brings me the most joy.
