Tsuchiya’s signature works are the series of pieces that look like Dango dumplings on a stick, titled as “Leaves”, and the “Flower” series in which he colors in the canvas in multiple paints. He sometimes takes notes on materials such as “sushi”, people and even service information of a bus. Characterized by the generous use of vibrant colors and a hearty feel of plants, “Leaves” and “Flower” both attract many fans. In recent years, he has received favorable reputations for his works for sliding screens of a newly-built house and walls at a beauty salon and foster home.
A collaboration with a fan brand 「FANO」, which is designed using recycled paper from origami cranes donated to Hiroshima. It is filled with thoughts of peace that transcend time and culture and are passed down from generation to generation.
One-thousand paper cranes are sent from all over the world, not to mention Japan. The number of origami cranes is 10 milliona year, weighing 10tons. This is an initiative started in Hiroshima to digest the thoughts of peace contained in paper cranes. The paper cranes, reborn as「FANO」, will send a breeze of peace to the world.
