Further information

Kitano draws time, space and music into his eerie, surreal print in which he depicts his favourite piano chair - empty. The spheres, changing gradually and softly with slow quiet movement represent him, while the coloured lights play his favourite melody.

Kitano lives in Nagano Prefecture where he was born. He was educated at Tsukuba University where he attended graduate school.
