Tatsuya OKA

I always enjoyed drawing and have been working as a graphist for the past twenty years (my professional works can be seen on http://www.exprime.co.jp/). In 1999, Maia Maniglier organized my first exhibition in Paris.
To show for the first time your works in a foreign country is an exciting and moving experience; a melting pot, a maelstrom (UZU in Japanese). It is how uzu.info became my artist site.
