I am delighted to make an announcement of the 7th “Kotenko-Tenten”.
One by one, my pieces of work have left me since the 1st exhibition.
It has been 10 years since I decided to become an artist.
I can now tell “I am an artist” because of you who supported me and
became the owners of my art works.
An old storehouse next to my workshop has been turned into a brand new gallery.
I look forward to seeing you all here in Shinshyu-Nakano this autumn.
