    Michihiro Matsuoka has always been interested in weathered devices and natural objects, getting inspiration from them to create his works. He participates in both domestic and international events, where his sculptures are highly praised. In 2016, one of his pieces was auctioned at Christie's Asia First Open. A large private exhibition of his works was held in 2018 in the Sum-Art Museum of Beijing.
