東京造形大学 造形学部美術学科絵画専攻領域  卒業

色彩と流動性によって、うつろいゆく現象を絵画として描く画家。主な活動である”Alive Painting”では、様々な性質を持つ液体を流転させ、見るものに要素の流れがもたらす美的な快楽と、様々な景色や生命を想起させる。近年では、自ら音も絵も同時に奏でるソロパフォーマンスと、その排水を紙に定着させる二対の制作を精力的に行う。扱うメディアは多岐にわたるが、一貫して異なるもの同士の関係性を描く。近年では TEDxHanedaDELECTRICITY Art Festival 2017  (US Detroit) Ars Electronica Fes 2016(オーストリア)にも出演。 国内外問わず描いている。
