Interview & Message

I n t e r v i e w

1.When did you start production? What made you start?

My family tells me that I have been drawing since I was 3 years old.

I liked it and promised to be a painter with my best friend in the future. That's why it started.

2.Please let me know if you have been influenced by anything in the past

That is Claude Monet. Monet's "Impression, Sunrise" was the first painting I liked in the world.

Even as an adult, I like it because the scenery he draws teaches us that we can never see anything without light, and that beauty is dazzling.

Also, the scenery in Monet's paintings is much more beautiful than in reality, and I like his paintings for a long time because I can feel the warmth of the flowers, the light, and the human beings there at that time.

4.Is there anything you like or are enthusiastic about other than creating your work?

5.Do you have any thoughts or stories in this work?

As Zipangu, I drew a collage work with an awareness that it was a golden country for someone.

I made it a work in which the story holds true no matter where you look at the picture from above, below, left or right.

It would be great if the art could create the concept of each viewer, just as each person has their own utopia.

6.Is there anything you would like to try in the future?

I would like to continue to express myself widely, such as package design and logo design, focusing on murals, events, illustrations and art.

I want to carefully face each and every job in front of me.

I would like to meet an environment where I can work while interacting with more people.

I want to continue to meet through my work, and I will do my best to have a connection with encounters that I have not met.

7.Please give a message to the person who received your work at the end

To those who met my painting through the form of NFT art

I am very happy. It's still hard to live because of the corona, but I'm looking forward to seeing you in front of the painting with a smile someday.

I would be honored if you could add more colors to your daily life.

Art de vivre Art in your life.
