My subject theme is human beings. Some are depicted in human form, others not.

What I would like to pursue throughout my drawings and paintings is ‘a silhouette of man’,

comprised of invented systems, i.e.machinery, domesticated animals, and societies,

which are abundant and overflowing in our daily lives. – Kota Omoto
