Statement <Yoko Ayukawa>

This time I focused on life and painted it.
I tried to draw the traces left on every wall and wall in the human world by people colliding with each other and bursting energy.
I feel a sense of blockage due to the coronavirus, and the world has a dark atmosphere, but I hope that everyone in the world will be able to shine with the power that people inherently have in many colors. .

Statement <Hiranuma Masahito>

The reason why I started to draw series FASHION is that I was fascinated and moved by the small oil paintings of many masters.
Many of their small works are sketches before painting large works, but the energy of the brush lines that are directly inserted in them stimulates my sensibility.

When you have sex, go out of your way to think that this is the ideal sex. Instead of being satisfied with having sex, do what you want directly and instinctively seek her out, love her, and touch the other person's heart as your heart desires. i want to have sex It is more interesting to seek and give each other SEX as you want.

I paint like this.
I am fascinated by its charm.
Draw what you want.

After all, it is more attractive to express the inner side as it is than to dress up the surface, and it stimulates my sensibility.
Dressing up the inside is FASHION and ROCK. PUNK is the cutting edge. EROS floating there. I love that feeling.
