[Work description]
When I started working on this piece, I first wanted to make good use of the unevenness of the surface that is unique to wood carving, and I focused on how I could effectively show off that expression.
Once I re-carved all the parts that I was interested in with a chisel, I finished the shape of the bear itself and the digging marks to my satisfaction, and then added coloring to take advantage of them.

For me, painting is about releasing my free spirit.
When I say painting, I don't think that painting only happens when I'm facing the canvas.
I think that everything in daily life, such as eating, excreting, sleeping, and sexual intercourse, is part of drawing.
I want to create works that can liberate the spirits of those who view my work.
Also, this kind of work is my driving force.

What is P/OP?

"P/OP" is an art project that creates new value by replacing traditional Japanese tansu with "paulownia wood" and using acrylic boards with the same characteristics of being light and easy to process.
