Instead of ink or paint, I draw with adhesive tape. Tiny pieces of tape, cut by precision knife and scissors, compose a whole picture. This unconventional art medium gives my work unique lines, patterns, and textures, evoking the feel of modern graphic design while also lending itself to works reminiscent of traditional Japanese arts like woodcut and papercutting. My works express how I see the world and my own identity, synthesizing elements of Eastern and Western, traditional and modern culture. Having grown up in Japan, I now live and work in Los Angeles as a tape artist.
