Nishioka will copy directly from an existing music score, meaning his works are related to actual pieces of music, although they may not be easily read by a piano player. He avoids distraction when creating by not listening to music, but he will hum songs as he draws. It seems there is always music in his head. As Nishioka’s astigmatism worsens in his left eye, the compositions of his musical score drawings move further to the right.
He creates works other than his iconic music scores, such as letters and photo images that are his own personal take on the originals. The majority of his works are produced in black and white, although he experiments occasionally with colour, and it takes him about three days to complete a piece.
Nishioka’s works are in the abcd collection in Paris, France, and he has had his work exhibited in Japan, Los Angeles USA, Prague and Paris
