Jun was raised in regional Kanagawa, where he studied Shodo (traditional calligraphy) and where his grand father, a Zen Monk, became a major influence on his philosophy and aesthetic vision.
When Jun moved to Tokyo, and became involved in the city’s growing underground scenes, jungle, hip-hop and most formatively, graffiti.
At the time, Tokyo graffiti had become distinctively focused on sweeping movements and minimal abstract shapes, a stylistic direction inspired by a visionary pair of Tokyo artists, Kami and Sasu. It was in this scene that Jun found the platform for his unique vision, adding to the vivid artistic dialogue that was buzzing across Tokyo’s streets and walls.
