ALIMO
Animator / Painter
Born in Yamaguchi, Japan in 1977.
Lives and works in Kanagawa.

He tackles his original invented technique, ‘animation tableau’, which combines painting and animation altogether. This technique requires a stupendous steady layered process of shooting, painting and editing.
Completed story is fanciful and takes us to far beyond our daily life experiences but having a nostalgic sense of reality at the same time.
