Self taught origami artist Toma Takeda discovered Moyamoya disease and had surgery at the age of 8, during his 2 months recovery in the hospital he started to learn the art of origami to pass time and mastered the skill in years of practices. Unless he finds it necessary, most of his origami works are not using glue or scissors and can be folded with one piece of paper. Toma, now 16, continues origami as his main hobby and spends time at a local private art workshop owned by a fine artist to learn drawing with hopes to work in the arts or related fields in the future.
