For clarity sake, is Sashie really his first name? When you google him and according to his website, it's Masakatsu Sashie. I've been perplexed ever since I first noticed you had the two inverted on your website a while back, as it contradicted my understanding of it and all the other listings out there. Do you have it listed as such due to the surname sometimes - or typically (I believe, at least) - coming first in some Asian cultures? Or is this the way you understand his name to be?

To be honest, I'm not sure. It's typical of Japanese artists. For example, sometimes you see Nara Yoshitomo and others Yoshitomo Nara. One is the Japanese order and the other the Western. But if you don't know which is which...
It does seem that his name is more commonly Masakatsu Sashie.
