About Hikaru


Hikaru is a citizen of the archetypal world beyond the boundaries of folk, tribal, race oriented identities. Of course, part of him embodies the genuine Japanese aesthetic, as his maternalgreat grandfather, who was an Imperial Court - appointed artisan. His gift shop and the studio was visited by the Court from time to time.
Hikaru's initial training in art, music, and writing had begun when he was four years old. As Leonardo da Vinci, whom Hikaru has followed since he was ten (1972), he is a man of many expressions: art (both figurative and abstract), music, dance, acting, writing, and teaching.

His art has been shown in Europe (Germany, England, Italy, Greece, France, etc), Japan, Australia, and the U.S.A. His portfolio is on file at the Etude (Archive) department of the Louvre Museum in Paris, France via the recommendation from the former Director of the Painting Department (currently the President of the Louvre Museum), Pierre Rosenberg. He is also listed in the First edition of Lexikon der Phantastischen Kunstler (Encyclopedia of the Fantastic Artists) along with William Blake, Salvador Dali, Giuseppe Arcimboldo, Francis Bacon, etc.
