Biography

For the past few years, I have been drawing the Pink Army as an icon of my artwork. There was a huge demand for images of war in the fictional world of anime and video games, and I depict unrealistic plastic model soldiers in pink, which is the opposite of the green that is associated with military imagery is why I started this series.
In my latest work, "still life," I have appropriated the format of still life paintings, but I have also created a story that is associated with the motifs placed on the tabletop, and expressions that are inspired by Peter Pan, such as denying the existence of the real image and shadow by not accompanying it. The story of the Pink Army, which throws itself into battle in a fictional world, is both fantastical and a satire of reality.
