Ogawa's concern is the continuum surrounding a sphere and the expression of the energy he believes is contained within his shapes. His soundless floating orbs pulsating through a continuum of all pervasive light become a mandala for aesthetic and spiritual experiences.
He was born in Fukuoka where he still lives, and educated at Tama University.
