About Tomoya ARAI

The following year he had his first solo exhibition. His style is sculptural, he selects planks of wood which he carves with a hatchet and further characterizes by rough engraving with a rattan. He now resides with his wife and three children in Shimanto, on Shikoku Island, which is known for its beautiful countryside, river, and woods.
