KAWAGOE SUNRIZE2022, which was visited by 4,500 people, came to a close.
The project was held to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Kawagoe City’s establishment as a city.
We completed a huge artwork of 3.5M x 10M with citizens.
We would like to thank all the citizens of Kawagoe and the people of Shukutoku University and Tokyo International University who helped us to complete the work together.
I would also like to thank the Kawagoe Chamber of Commerce and Industry for their support. I will never forget the opportunity to speak at such an inspiring event amidst all the changes in the Corona Disaster.
From the day I thought, “I’m going to be an artist,” I was invited to Kawagoe, a city I love.
Doing live painting was one of my biggest, biggest dreams.
I’ve been an artist for about two years, and the timing of the 100th anniversary of the city of Kawagoe came and
I was able to get this offer.
I would be very happy to work with you on various occasions in the future.
And thank you so much to all my fans who always support me.

The subject of this work is a bird called “Kari,” which is a flock of flying geese.
In the world of After Corona, each one of us will of course do our best.
I hope that everyone will fly away together with the power of the community, the local area and the citizens.
I decided to draw a wild goose on this stage of the 100th anniversary of my precious hometown.
There are always many difficulties. I, too, have had my share of falls along the way.
I believe that we can go far if we go together in spite of difficulties.
This is what I have been thinking about in my artistic activities.
I came here today with the hope of creating such a work together with the citizens.
I used watercolors for this work. The watercolors are very light in color.
I think it has a good quality of being able to layer colors and express the idea of taking advantage of others.
Also, I usually use white costumes for my live painting.
Today I wore a black costume. This is because there is still a lot of chaos in the air.
I chose this to express the feeling that we should all work together to create a future out of the night, out of the darkness.
In the live painting, the paint bounced off the black clothes, and it was as if there was a light on them.
I also had the thought that it would become a star in aiming for the next step. As a result.
the pattern spread over the costume like an aurora borealis.
I’m glad to hear some people say, “It looks like a work of art.

Thank you so much to everyone who always accompanies me so far.
