One afternoon, in front of the train station, I saw a young man smoking his cigarette, and wispering “Die, die, die…”. I thought “This guy is mentally sick…” and also I thought “What a difficult world we live in!”.
In the unstable world like this, I often feel like there’s no meaning of making art and art has no power. Nevertheless, I wanted to make something to lighten up people’s feeling, and this time I made my works inspired by the image of the morning dawn.
The morning dawn is strange, it’s always the same sun, but the color is entirely different by the place, air temperature, weather, etc. The same way we are in each different place in this world, and we are living each person’s life with different happiness and troubles.
I can only do a little thing by my artworks, but I hope people who saw this work will feel like being cheered up like when people see the rising sun.
