Style

Ichi’s artworks are full of imagination and satire aiming at the society. He insists on his own way to reach the world, even though living in the era of globalization, with cultures trending in the similar way.
Experience

Ichi was born in 1984, in Shikoku, a city on the Seto Inland Sea, where is full of local cultures and natural sceneries. When he was at 20, he went to New York alone to release his passion of street art, and lived there for many years as a homeless. The experience of facing the world by himself gives his creation a unique sense of fantasy and solitude. It is obviously that his works reveal that how a young man from a conservative countryside has been influenced by the high developed and modernized city. Thus, his works have distinct characteristic and resonate with those people who live in modern cities.

Collection

Ichi’s works have been collected by Mr. Brainwash, Nick Walker, and other collectors and art lovers from all over the world.
