"In the late '80s, the artwork that appeared in skateboard board designs and Western music jacket art stuck in my mind as a junior high school student at the time. I thought it would be great if someday my drawings could be used for skateboard boards or CD jackets, so I started drawing pictures like crazy.
When I was in my second year of high school, I met a Noh mask artist and became fascinated by traditional Japanese craftsmanship, and became an apprentice as a mask maker.
American street culture and traditional Japanese craftsmanship have influenced my style. Even though they are two different worlds, they have something in common and it was natural for me to be drawn to them.
In 2020, my concept for my future work will be to create something that I hope will make people who see my work smile, happy, joyful, and relaxed.
Hello, my name is SEISUI SAGA.
I live in Japan with my wife and two young sons.
