Title: Image recording apparatus and image recording method

Abstract: An image recording apparatus and an image recording method enable high density and without blank space between pixels printed on a recording medium to be printed. The image recording apparatus comprises a multi-hole photoreceptor provided with a transparent conductive layer, photoconductive layer, and multi-hole layer having a plurality of holes arranged with equal interval, on a transparent supporting structure, and an opposite electrode arranged so as to be opposite to the multi-hole photoreceptor with interval while inserting a recording medium. Conductive colored particles which fly in order from a plurality of holes of the multi-hole photoreceptor form respective pixels by driving the multi-hole photoreceptor corresponding to the pixel.
