"The enigmatic figures I draw are reflections of human conditions such as; wry, satire, whimsy, irony, paradox or the mismatches that happen often in people’s daily lives. My figures also employ a state of motion or movement suggesting an actor/actress who narrates a story in a play. The images in my intaglio prints.. are little figurines in action. They are cheerful, joyous and restless. They are all happy people." – Yuji Hiratsuka
