  • The artist's work is also sold in the shop in the university, but the price is ten times the price associated with it, but it is only one item carefully made. The building is also flying to the change to the one that the taste is good in the brick and the building of the Sum.

  • I went to the 2019 Festival of the Arts. The use of the book is to see the world expressed in the book. My purpose is mainly painting. It is the work of the people who went through the difficulty indeed. I thought that the drawing power was wonderful. However, I felt that the old or refreshing works were in the minority, and the majority of the strange works were the ones. I think that the work which can be cherished for a long time in my hand is an excellent work. In that sense, there were not a lot of works which seemed to want to put it in the living room of the home. Still, I want to go out by all means next year.
