He considers 'flow' as an important factor and he uses mineral pigments which is used in Japanese paintings to express the movements and flows caused by physical phenomena such as water flow, airflow, and osmotic pressure. Also, he often determine the theme and expression based on the “feelings that make deterioration and weathering attractive” by the “flow” of time.
