As a professional dancer and artist, Kasei have performed on stage both in Japan and overseas, taught contemporary dance and classical ballet to children and adults alike, and also illustrated for picture books and magazines as a painter. In his paintings, he have expressed the flowers and plants that proliferate in space like tentacles, gracefully, precisely, and violently as a swell of tremendous vital energy. His style is to leave it to his own imagination, but in \\\"Dansketch\\\" (dance + sketch), which he started in 2007, he drew the human body in an extremely simple way, conscious of liberation from such precision. With the theme of dance, he explore energy, the flow of time, and the feeling of space as another style of his own. From 2018, works of The BOX series have begun. Using the BOX as a theater space, he creates a micro-cosmos that incorporates photographs, paintings, and all kinds of materials with a rich dimension, using his own memories, experiences, and the body as motifs. From 2022 onwards, he started producing Swimming Birds to clear the dark world of war and conflict, as well as the pandemic of Covid-19. With the motto of creating works for the public, the power of art can transcend national borders and languages as lightly as the wind.
