Kazoo has been traveling all over the world to see different cultures and how people live. He found that everywhere, regardless of culture or language, that people who live by the water are the SAME! They enjoy sun and water, eating good fish, sharing the good smile that water people carry!
Kazoo was born in Japan and grew up learning calligraphy from his grandfather. Born in the astrological sign of Cancer (one of the water signs), he always felt drawn to rivers and the sea. When he saw his first ocean wave, he fell in love with the water’s movement and constant changes of color. He began printmaking in New York City in 2004 and found a connection between the ocean and printing. Since then he has sought to capture the sea’s shifts of color, light and shape in his work.
