I am using natural green rust in order to create a warm and soft environment that we need more than ever in the Covid-era.

I want the background to be green rust and the surface of the water to be a gentle blue-gray. After painting the fusuma panels for the Kongobuji temple, I want to challenge myself by using colors.

On the other hand, I continue to work on the waterfalls with platinum backgrounds, which evoke a transcendental and sacred space.

Spoke over Zoom about the famous Edo-period Japanese artist Katsushika Hokusai. The piece will be published in Asahi Newspaper sometime in mid-May.
