Keigo studied design in Japan and started his career as an artist since 2012. At times he paid regular visits to art museums, and doodled sketches in his journal. One day, he decided to share his art with the world via social media. As he uploaded his first drawing on Instagram, Keigo was transformed from a normal office worker into an illustrator. His Instagram account “k5fuwa” has over 1.1 million followers currently. His most popular piece of illustration now stands at a staggering figure of 600,000+ views.
Keigo’s earlier works were rather experimental, and based on trivial matters in his daily life. Keigo let his imagination ran wild, exploring the boundless world of art creations. Keigo continued to extract his philosophy into simplistic drawings day by day, slowly gaining attention from all over the world. He later published two illustration books in Japan, China, Taiwan, and Korea, containing a collection of his favourite artworks. Apart from being interviewed by numerous magazines, Keigo has also collaborated with renowned brands such as Samsung, Line, Takara Tomy Arts Co, Ezaki Glico, Daimaru Matsuzakaya Department Store and many others. Keigo is very popular in Hong Kong too and was invited for crossover projects with renowned brands including CASETiFY, NESCAFÉ, Tempo, Good Mask and Artzbrew Gallery.
