Graduated from Sokei Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Tokyo. Influenced by the Japanese Anime culture like his mentor Takashi MURAKAMI, IWAMOTO's works are full of the elements extracted from the images of Japanese cartoon figures, Lolita and Otaku cultures. He constntly focuses on depicting the cute girls that he sees around the local resident neighbourhood in Japan and transfers those images into Anime or video game characters.
