Artist Biography

Creative Concept:

Currently various companies in the capitalist society produce many products and make money. Perhaps the company may be dreaming of alchemy. It copies a lot of brands attached to industrial products circulating around the world, and its aggregate is made into works. The names of the brands will not remain after 100 and 200 years. By making them porcelain, however, they will remain forever as modern fossil. And it seems that gold is shining forever.
