美美(BiBi 、 “Heart of Gold” )
美美(BiBi, 美美=The beautiful beauty, “Heart of Gold” )

Living in America brought me into close contact with people from a variety of different ethnic groups and cultures. It made me realize how unconscious I was of my Japanese heritage. I never felt it so much while in Japan, but in New York I definitely felt Japanese. This changed my perception of my country. On the one hand it made some parts of Japanese culture look fresh and new to me, while on the other it made some parts seem strange.

This work, while arranging the Japanese family crest, etc., while looking at the universality and modern from the old days my art, I have conveyed a message of universality that is irrespective of country, race and religion.
