I am a Paper painter.
After decades working behind the scenes of Tokyo's boutique fashion scene,
I decided to become an artist at the age of 53 and started to portray with paper.
By using only paper, I hope to draw the ultimate expression of art.
I create pictures, but instead of paint, I create with colored paper.
I cut the paper into tens of thousands of pieces, sometimes even into a million pieces, with a cutter and ruler, and using a pair of tweezers and a touch of glue, layer them together one by one.
The unique texture of the paper painting changes expression with every shift in lighting, adding depth and character.
