Contemporary art and tradition and my style

I have been working on painting since 2004. I paint pictures for variety of global lifestyles and Japanese living space of today with my color and style.

I want to paint oilpainting and watercolor on Japanese paper all in my style. I lived in Germany for about 16 years and there I learned a lot of things. I got to know the western rules of contemporary art and I have had respect for them. I came back here in Yokohama in 2013 and have lived in Japanese house. I see Japanese lifestyle and speak Japanese everyday. Here is my home and Japan is different from Europe. I know the rules of contemporary art and I live in Japan. I paint and now make "my art."
