I made this process collage based on the
process that goes into creating my artwork.
always have my camera, to document things I see that inspire me, and I collect
these images in a sort of mental drawer. Living in Tokyo, recently my camera’s
memory is filled with images of rust patterns, the textured walls of buildings,
graffiti, tape covered poles, and all sorts of urban textures that catch my
eye. I am intrigued by the feeling of history in the layers of these textures.
I use all of the things that inspire me about living in Japan to create
paintings where tradition collides with urbanity in interesting layers.
