Although Mr. Usami is currently unknown, his paintings exude an extraordinary charm and are viewed to have immense potential. Mr. Usami was a graduate of the Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology, and worked there as a technical officer. There is a lot of novelty surrounding this artwork that has resurfaced today, from which we can feel a profound spiritual presence that many modern artists cannot produce today.
