Born on 1987, living in Shiga Prefecture, Japan
Has been participating in “Atelier Yamanami” since 2009
With the sole desire to get attention of others, Hiroya produces himself always conscious of people around him, singing hard with playing air guitar fast to the rhythm when music is played, directing an automobile with over-action when he sees one backing up, and pretending to smoke upon taking a break in recess. One of his self-appeals is art creation.
Hiroya chooses his main themes, photos of people, animals, etc., from magazines or art books. While folding his arms and contemplating the compositional arrangement with various angles like an artist are his production based on his own aesthetics, his pictures surprise himself upon transforming to strange shapes emitting psychedelic glow, which Hiroya himself couldn’t anticipate.
