At the age of twenty, Hitori left Japan to pursue his interest in Art. He travelled across the art capital for the next twenty learning all the ropes to find himself settling curiously down with his lovely wife in Penang and this year happens to be their twenty fifth year of residence. A little odd but very humble, Hitori is not an atypical Japanese that we know of. Blending in well with the local folks, he stays in a pre war house filled with ‘trash’ which he masterly changes them into works of art- an interesting sort of collage between conceptual, assemblages and sculpture and finally outdid himself after being commissioned to create a gigantic ten storey high sculpture facing our easterly coast called the “One Blue Sky”. Hitori also singlehandedly initiated the “Penang Island Sculpture Trail” where all his well known sculptor friends he invited from all over the world were encouraged to stamp their mark in Penang with their sculpture contributions hence leaving a trail of Art he gifted Penang. Picture taken at Stewart Lane, Penang.
