What's New!!
 

     My Favorite Artist from my Home Town Osaka-Mr. Tatsuo Kamon came to see my show in December during my show at Contemporary Gallery Yuki-sis in Tokyo.

The reason why I loved his song and listened for years while I lived in the US for the last 25 years is that the song he writes remind me of the days I grew up in Osaka, Town of Jokes and comedians. I felt similar to his way of making songs and my way of making sculptures by using everyday topics and look at them from another angle and questions them. So my Gallery director Yuki Terashima wrote a letter and send a press release and He and his wife came to see my show. They are nice people and understands art and they kindly spent more than an hour and half in the gallery!

    He saw I was making self portrait, and said, "Can you make me one?"

So I made a piece about him. I have read his two novels called "Okano Ueno Kiraboshi" and "Ta・ka・ku・ra". Both had filled with his back ground and his warm friendship with people who he spent time with. You need to read these books to know why I made those details with Jaguar, etc.


      Hiro's group show called "Desire"

For the last 15 years, the Lighton International Artists Exchange Program has fostered the sharing of ideas around the world. For this exhibition, more than 30 artists from 22 countries answer the question, "What do you desire?" The answers, some shrouded by cultural constraints, reflect some of the most important political and social issues of the day.
