Donation to Barbican Ball 2016!

It was my pleasure having donated my work to Barbican Ball 2016. I couldn’t attend the ball as my solo show opening with Hooligan Art Dealer was on the same day. But probably next year, I will!!!

I also received a lovely message from the winner of my work. How sweet, I must be a happy artist!

Why Flowers?

Why Flowers

Why Flowers?

I have been painting flowers in my work a lot throughout the years.

The flowers have been used in various ways as if they are personified showing the emotional ups and downs and they are also depicted as metaphorical expressions relating to life itself from birth to death by the changes of their appearances.

I could say the idea came from Japanese traditional thoughts such as feeling hope from full bloom or fragility from fallen flowers, however, I surely feel this idea is coming from my deep heart too.

Following this strong feeling, I never make sketches of actual flowers for a specific work.
This is not something about real flowers, this is about “flowers in my mind”.
