I’m grateful. For everyone who came to see my first exhibit at Tokyo Art Tank vol. 11 last week. And everyone who was involved in this group art event.

While I have never been to a summer camp when I was little, I imagine this was akin to one could experience as an adult.

I took a week off from my daywork to experience my first art show. In essence, for seven days, the gallery was my office, and the artists were practically my coworkers.

Everyday, I had a chance to try new things. I had opportunities to talk with other artists, meet people who live nearby, or curious travellers visiting from afar. Many of my friends dropped by and even some secret fans I didn’t know I have. We talked about the artwork in place and exchanged ideas to help each other grow.

How refreshing it was for people who were willing to talk about art instead of the job I do for the sake of income was well worth my time. The road ahead is still long, but someday I'd like to transition into a full-time career in creative work.

I feel this was an important step for my art. After doing so much online for long, it was incredible to finally do it in person. I’ve already received ideas for new shoots and suggestions for other galleries where to exhibit my artwork. I can wait to see what happens next.

Special thanks to
