Satoru Kobayashi

Lumbini Museum (Iwate Prefecture)

If you look closely, you can see that it is made up of various numbers connected together. While attending a junior high school special needs school, Kobayashi began to write all of his letters in his diary and essays in a unique arrangement. At first, his teachers struggled to find a way to correct his behavior, but they soon came to see it as an attractive form of expression. This was the turning point, and his expression began to take flight as art that brings joy to many people. His favorite musicians are Billy Joel, Queen, Yosui Inoue, Spitz, and THE BOOM. He also loves walking.
