A secret matter of the chain of life unfolds deep in the forest. The loves and daily lives of beasts with human faces that could only be depicted through animation. Work that cannot distinguish between male and female, young and old, living and dead is delicately yet boldly interrogated. Like ivy wound around the folds of your heart, perhaps the right way to appreciate this work is to fully give yourself over to its enveloping tree-shade.
Born in Yamagata in 1989. Graduated from Tohoku University of Art and Design in 2011.
Began creating animation after entering university. Creates animated works while taking care that each frame is appealing as a picture in its own right.
