Greeting 2022

The year 2022 is coming to an end.
This past year has been one corona(covid-19) that will not be settled, a prolonged war, the harmful effects of vaccines and the Unification Church issue in Japan after another.
Our future is uncertain.

And the rapid spread of AI image creation has taken those of us in the painting industry by surprise.
I, too, was really surprised at first and was convinced that our jobs would disappear in the future.
The news came at a time when my depression was worsening, and I was depressed and lay on the floor for several months thinking that there was no way forward.
However, only recently I came to the conclusion that this was a blessing in disguise.
This was a blessing in disguise.
Because when I ran out of ideas, I thought that I could use the help of AI.
I think I have a good assistant now, and in the future I will be able to borrow AI ideas from my past creative activities and build a new art form of my own.
In my creative work to date, I have concentrated on colour (especially blue).
I intend to continue to present new works in collaboration with the power of AI without changing my past policy.
We look forward to working with you in the future.
I'll do my best - Ei Ei Ei Mung.
