In the Zen tradition, Mushin, literally “without mind” or “without heart” translates to “without striving” or “without deliberate intention”and reflects the idea of letting go of material aspirations.

His work has been exhibited at the Mainichi Shodo Ten (Tokyo), Kyoto Prefectural Exhibition Hall (Kyoto), The Frye Museum (Seattle), The Islamic Cultural Center (San Francisco), and is represented by Kobo Gallery (Seattle).
