Born in 1986. Real name: Sayuri.
Started learning calligraphy at the age of 6 and became a master of calligraphy at the age of 19. At the age of 23, he encountered ink painting (Nanga). While writing calligraphy, he also draws ink paintings. While feeling the traditional realm where formality and dignity are valued, he uses his brushes to respond to people's wishes. There are “people” behind the work. With this in mind, I continue to create works that are close to people.
