Bio

Born in 1966. Since his teenage years, he has had a strong desire to "express" himself, and after a series of twists and turns that took him to the apparel design and music industries, he designed and constructed his own interior design store in his early thirties. He had intended to focus mainly on interior design sales, but the store's design led to a flurry of store design jobs, and before long, he was working as a spatial designer. He has been active as a space designer. He has designed and created more than 200 spaces in Japan. After turning 50 years old, he quit expressing himself within the limitations of client's wishes and budget, and in 2021,based on the methods and expressions of space design that he had experienced, he obtained the freedom of expression to create paintings without being bound by anything. The sea of imagination has broken and is overflowing with vigorous activity.
The urge to visualize "poetic things" like music, which are invisible to the eye but firmly present in the changing times and the daily flow of time. For example, the concept of "time," which progresses from the past to the future, is not displayed as a one-way arrow from the past to the future. It is "just there" as if it surrounds the surroundings in which it exists. My masterpiece. Time to cling. The metallic image of the "concept of time" clings to the seemingly immovable bark. As we are tossed around by information and the evolution of the Internet, the way we perceive things is becoming more uniform. We have already been drilled from above our heads with the fundamental education and environment for thinking, and we have to speak "words" to maintain balance. I hope that the works produced by "SOU" will trigger "change" in our casual daily lives. With this in mind, I hope to express the world that my inner poesie points to. GAZE.
