Sawada Shinichi. Sawada, Shinichi (1982) was born in Shiga Prefecture, Japan. Upon completing several years of study in a specialized school, he was received into an institution for the mentally disabled, in the city of Kusatsu. Diagnosed as autistic, he attended a workshop where he worked with clay. His magical and monstrous creatures seem to be the fruit of a personal mythology. The creator works silently and with unflagging regularity.
