Seidai was born in Tokyo, Japan. Because his father worked for a Japanese corporation abroad, his earliest education began in Greece, then moved on to Kuwait, Japan, and then the United States.  Sometimes we wonder if he was born with a paintbrush in his fist. Other little children may have eaten crayons, but he understood what crayons were for, and instinctively used them as well as paintbrushes all through grade school. With high hopes in 1990, he entered the University of Hawaii as an art major. To his five-year dismay, realism in art at the college was on the wane, and abstract/conceptual art was in full swing. Nights he stayed up and painted in the empty art studios at UH until dawn, striving for excellence in contour, value, and color.  1995 marked his graduation with the degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts. In 2002 he attended an intensive one-week workshop presented by Nelson Shanks. Later that year in San Mateo, California, he attended another superb 3-week workshop presented by Tony Ryder of New Mexico.
