Hiroshi's artwork has themes of 'parents' control', 'absurdness' and 'darkness' as well as it hints the atmosphere in Haruki Murakami and David Lynch's surreal and realistic world. His narrative painting expresses the 'mark-making' as if children and devils play and sing a poem together on a canvas so that they will be recovered by their optimistic therapy. Hiro also researched 'honesty in drawing' for his MA dissertation and visited to Victoria & Albert Museum every morning with his small Moleskin sketchbook. He spent about thiry minutes a day to sketch traditional sculptures as if someone goes to a gym every morning. Since he visited to the Collection de l'Art Brut in Lausanne, he has been obsessed by the Outsider Art created by handicapped masters.
After his long journey from Tokyo, Hiroshi was trained on a BA Graphic Design course at Central Saint Martins. Then he completed a Master Course at the Royal College of Art in 2007. He is now an artist based in London.
