2. Tell us about your aesthetic.

My interests, theme and the way of expression in terms of art change from time to time, so it’s in a state of flux.ย Lately, I’ve been using limited color palettes, intense textures, chroma, or contrast and I think I was influenced by working with risograph.

3. What is your favourite medium and why?

I prefer working in digital because it’s handy. I can bring my laptop and Wacom everywhere to work.ย I also like the accidental color combination of risograph.

4. What is your artistic process like?

I try to collect image references from the Internet or my everyday life as much as I can.ย They help me a lot because I watch them all the working process.

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

It often makes me nervous because it is my job and an important part of me.ย Recently I’ve started thinking not only how to express myself but also how my works influence the world.
