“Many times I’ve seen artists face their matrices, often with passion, sometimes with awareness, in search of a compromise between pure technique and its intents. Shuhei has just waited, did not force the matter by leaving a drag method, has remained silent waiting until he developed a “positive thinking” and became matrix himself. In the sense that the naturalness I ever saw him put in those simple, but perfect gestures, it was immediately attributed to him, who was there, aware of creating himself, to put in those matrices all of its deepest experiences of life and art. I then tried again the same feeling looking at inking and printing. Always full of positive energy and ready to be surprised every time the sheet, stole the color to the matrix is raised. That his repeated “okay, thanks ” will remain in my memories as one of those beautiful reality that still make me love this job.”
