He has gone by the name “Parco” since 1989, when he was teaching elementary school, and won the Parco Award in “the Nippon Graphics Exhibition”. In the 1990s, after working as a junior high and high school art teacher, he changed careers and became an illustrator, then made his manga debut in “Monthly Manga Garo”, the publication Garo where his “Drifting Teacher” was published as a book. Kinoshita is also nicknamed Koen-no Kinoshita (lit. “under the tree in the park”) because he frequently holds workshops and performances for children, primarily in public plazas. He became active overseas after joining the contemporary art group The Group 1965, and has shown work in many exhibitions in Germany, Switzerland, Ukraine, Italy, Spain, Korea, China, Mexico, and other Asian and European countries, as well as unilaterally participating in international exhibitions by staging guerilla performances alone. After the Great East Japan Earthquake of 2011, he dedicated himself to community building through the power of art in disaster-affected areas and remains involved in reconstruction support activities today. In 2017, he moved to Miyagi Prefecture on the occasion of the Reborn- Art Festival, a festival of contemporary art in Ishinomaki City. There he officially exhibited in 2018 and 2019 for the third year in a row. On the day of the Great East Japan Earthquake of March 11, 2021, he opened a gallery “Hiyorizaka Art Gallery” in Ishinomaki, aiming to restore the heart of Ishinomaki through cultural exchange by art. He has been holding an annual exhibition at Tokushima Castle Museum in his hometown Tokushima prefecture, “Art Hakase saw it!” to support contemporary art activities in the region since 2019. Since 2016, he also launched art-related support activities in Banda Aceh, the area most severely affected by the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunami. He has been connecting two different affected areas with the local children through many workshops such as wood carving, painting, and diorama crafts.
