Residency Project

"While staying in the residency, I will hold a progressing open studio to communicate with artists regularly in order to develop direct relationships and also discussions and obtain feedback from both the audience and other artists. I would also like to observe the scenery of Tokyo and try to combine it with my work. I aim to hold a workshop and small exhibition for an open audience."

"I am interested in why people don't really know what they want and what true freedom is. I want to send a message of warning to modern people who have lost their own value through the Dodo bird, an extinct bird species that couldn't fly. I wander as a way to overcome the tragic story of the Dodo bird. Wandering is considered to be improper in a residential society, but I believe that a man can grow up by wandering on roads. For me, wandering becomes a reason and a purpose of painting."
