Masaki learned graphic design in a vocational school of design. While in school, he experienced 4’33”, the masterpiece of John Cage in his concert and became interested in experimental music of the United States. Afterwards, he started his own unique drawings with visualizing musical space in mind. Masaki produced “Jiuta (base songs)” Series based upon the expansion of space embodied by underground and Psychedelic rock and “Gig” Series expressing the visual image of deconstructed postmodern music represented by John Zorn, among others.
Masaki loves Antonin Artaud, a poet, and admits himself that he resolves existential anxiety caused by his long struggle against illness by drawing pictures.
