HIRO who was born in 1970 at Iwate prefecture in Japan is living as transsexual. He is in a half way of a journey for finding the answers of the meaning of "Essence for a living". Even though he has been familiar with pictures since his childhood, Picaso's picture had given a shock to him when he saw it on his art text book in his junior high school. It gave him the message of "It's ok to draw free! It's ok to live free!" and it changed his mind of drawing method which he had thought drawing should be realistic. After he grow up, he build his carrier as nurse. But he couldn't stop his enthusiasm for drawing picture and expressing. He started to learn art design by taking correspondence course of Kyoto University Art and Design and western painting by taking correspondence course of Musashino art university since 2003. As he was in pursuit of the essence for living, he became to take DNA or crystals into his artworks. And also, he is producing his artworks which subject is human and self­portraits while she is facing to herself. HIRO believes that Art can have common sense and connection with the people across the boarders and human races. He has been dreaming of participate to exhibit his art works in the foreign gallery so as to communicate with people all over the world. Participating the CRS gallery exhibition in 2015 would be a first step for him to find one of the answers of his journey.

In CRS gallery exhibition in 2015, he will exhibit the picture of series of debris of angel which is collaborated with the painting and collaged pictures of debris which are the Great East Japan Earthquake.
