All works created by Tetsuji Yamashita looks like its been created by computer graphics or paintings but its created by layering small pieces of papers.
Circle Life is all about meeting with people.
The moment you make a choice, you are full of curiosity.
At first you are curious, then you are interested, and you are impressed and finally, you are disappointed.
Before reaching disappointment, you meet many people, and you support them and you are supported by them.
It is a road stretched in the circle called "Circumstance.
" Eventually, you are led by a love that you meet in the "circle."
Then you grow and establish yourself.
To live means that you think and endure between your dream and reality, and walk in the ﾒcircleﾓ made by people.
