I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream For Ice Cream


The new I Scream Factory exhibition at A_Space, London started last week in style. We’ve had some wonderful media coverage so far:

Design Week


Art Wednesday 

If you’re in London, don’t miss out the show. It ends this Thursday!! 

I Scream Factory at A_Space

I’m proud to announce that I’ll be exhibiting next week with London-based artist collective I Scream Factory at A_Space, London!

I took brand-new images for the show which were inspired by Jim Jarmusch’s seminal film “Down By Law”. You can see them here. But if you’re in London from 8 - 15 May, I’d like you to see the work in the flesh!

Details of the exhibition can be found here.

Cloud & Victory S/S 2014 featuring Miko Fogarty

Last month, I flew back to Japan to photograph the wonderfully talented ballerina Miko Fogarty for Cloud & Victory, a Singapore-based ballet-inspired clothing brand.

Dream Ticket

It’s been three days since my London exhibition started. So far so good! If you’re planning to come to the exhibition, there’s a really nice article about it on We Heart. It’s called Dream Ticket!

Collaboration with Alessi’s Ark

I’m pleased to reveal that English singer-songwriter Alessi’s Ark is onboard for ‘Euphoric Serenity’.

I asked her to create handwritten introduction and captions for the exhibition and she has done it so beautifully as you can see below. 

You need to come see the rest for yourself! And I hope her wording of my world will also fuel the spark of your own imagination!

First Solo Exhibition in London

I’m thrilled to announce that I’ll be holding my first solo exhibition in London next month at Lomography Gallery Store East London.

Entitled ‘Euphoric Serenity’, the exhibition features a few images from ‘Sakuramadelica’, ‘Camera Poetica’, ‘Aria’s Dream No.2’, ‘Merry’s Mood’ and ‘Toy Vision’. It runs from the 6th till the 28th next month. The opening is the 6th and there’s a Diana Mini workshop scheduled on the 22nd. 

You can read about the exhibition on the Lomography website.


I’d like to take this opportunity to reach as many interesting people as possible to kickstart my new adventure in London. So, if you know someone who might be interested in my work, please spread the word. 

Looking forward to seeing you!
