1979 Born in Okinawa. Strongly influenced by the hip hop culture, and modern art in New York, creates characteristic art that crosses over genres. The vivid and pop images are packed with strong messages that are stimulating, and evoke emotion. Signature pieces include motifs of Shisa(Okinawa lion）, wards who protect from evil, and [Yellow Monkey] series. Based in Okinawa, Kuba also produces artwork that is exhibited in New York, Paris and Tokyo.
Life is short, but art continues to live on.
I continue to ask myself, if I could connect through art the present, including tomorrow, and pass it on to generations to come in the future, what is it that I want to leave as a legacy?
If I could brighten the future just a little bit with my art, it would bring me great joy.
I always begin my creations by saying to myself, "this is the beginning of the future."
I want to share my art with as many people as possible.
