Moriyuki Kuwabara was born in Hiroshima Prefecture in 1942 and went on to graduate from Nihon University having majored in Fine Arts. Kuwabara uses a compass to create these extraordinarily complex works of repeating circular forms, with the central point of each circle, of which there can be at least 1500, forming the framework of the entire piece.
