He had little time to test his skill in his early age until he came to this country. During his idle hours after work he found time to make a few dabs in sumi-e and calligraphy. Suddenly like his grandfather, he found the joy and excitement in creation of art.... During the lean years of the 1930's, he developed this very unique technique of using newspaper and tissue paper over- lay,... he started painting on both sides of the frame...."
