Born on 1978, living in Shiga Prefecture, Japan
Has been participating in “Atelier Yamanami” since 1997
The titles of pictures drawn by Satoshi are all “Dots and Lines.” He makes rough sketches of the outline by pencils with main themes of human figures, animals, and birds selected from art books and illustrated guides. Holding black ball-point pens, he fills with numerous dots and lines. While Satoshi’s hand movements seem to have no hesitation and he appears to draw impulsively, he actually varies the density of drawing so as not to become monotonous.
With the conspicuous contrast of white background and monochrome gradation resulting from overlapping dots and lines, Satoshi’s drawings brings in strange dynamism.
