Violent Art Made in NYC.



Although this is my way to express happiness and joy, people say my art is violent.

Perhaps this is because my art doesn’t always fit into any kind of place.

And when it doesn’t, it becomes VIOLENT ART.


I consider myself as a publisher of local music scene.

Since I was a kid, I’ve not been good at communicating with others but have loved drawing pictures. My language to communicate with people is through my drawings.

I always draw in the local music scene. Local music inspires me a lot. The music and musicians help me connect with other people. And I believe my art can connect music and people in return.

Now my artwork can be seen as cover art of records, flyers, murals of music studios and venues. You will connect with music through the art that I publish to the world.
