Yutaka Ai

Hi, My name is Yutaka Ai. I'm Japanese artist , based in U.S.A. I use ground-up crystals and other paints on layers of different papers such as Washi to make the shimmering art. Chanoyu Japanese teaism is the foundation of my art, and I explore transience and imperfection. I wake up every morning to prepare Matcha and meditate. Thru my art and tea, I take one day at a time and strive to connect to people and environment. I like updating my website with events and activities, and tea blogs wishing for an encounter. Email me yutaka.ai.art@gmail.com for any collaboration ideas.
