『A personal project which has been on- going since 2007. Through exploring my own feelings and identity in this project. I am creating an imaginative space named “Iblard”, inspired by Japanese painter Naohisa Inoue’s painting. An imaginative space which everyone possessed and yet trying to running away from. A space about imagination and possibilities. As we are growing old, not just our bodies, but also our hearts are getting old. I aim to preserve our soul from being aged, at the same time, reminding people of their own childhood. “Iblard” is a sacred land where everyone can become a kid once again, to explore and experience the joy of being part of the world and possibilities are infinite.』

The City of Aqua City of Water

The City of Aqua City of Water

Located in the middle of the sea in Iblard. Sea Water is constantly being blessed and purified by the giant vase at the peak of the city. Water in Iblard is said to be able to heal any sort of illness and extend life-span, but it will never promote immortality.

The Creature

The Creature

The Creature is a biomechanical moving city. The city itself was built as a moving fortress as the creator of the city was a adventurer who travelled around the world. As she travelled, she made new friends and they gather together, hence the city is constantly under construction to provide more space for everyone. It’s a city about adventure and courage. A city where all the brave ones are willing to open their eyes and see the world for themselves.

The Golden Memory

The Golden Memory

The House, Photo from the ancient book: The Golden Memory, Central library of Iblard. One of the first few houses built in Iblard. I still remember the day I sat on the roof top with you, enjoying fresh wind from the sea. Where are you now?

『New Series of Project HOME. In this latest version, I try to experiment with different perspectives and focus more on the story telling part. In my previous project HOME, narration was added to explain the story behind the drawing, while this time, I aim to convey the story with the drawing itself and adding no guidelines but the title. It’s up to the audience to feel and interpret the drawing anyway they want, and this is the freedom I am trying to express through my drawing. The story goes on, but in a new level. 』
