In 1994 I went to study in New York and was drawn to the large scale of, and the sense of freedom, in the ubiquitous graffiti. I never lost my interest in graffiti since, but I went back to Japan. Since meeting MADSAKI four years ago on Instagram, he has taught me how to use spray cans and introduced me to his friends snipe1 and TENGA one, leading us to do various collaborative projects. I think we truly managed to express ourselves freely with this work. I am so grateful.
