Kemono Gallery



Painter kemono gallery
1982 Born in Kesennuma City, Miyagi Prefecture, Japan.
In 2004, he suddenly had a mysterious experience of receiving a blue-white light that seemed to be a sign. After that, he began self-taught creative activities such as painting.
The motifs of his works are often wild animals, of which the Japanese serow is a special one, an animal that symbolizes himself.
It has been close to me since I was a child, and depending on how you look at it, it looks like a god or a devil, like nature itself, a mysterious being.I believe in the creation of ke-nomo, harmony, coexistence and equilibrium among all living things. I think that is very important. The animal is not a tame animal, but a wild and powerful animal. They are not tame animals, but animals that live wild and powerfully, and they are the gods of the land. Or, it can be a deformed being like a demon. They are beings that cannot be described in one word as animals, and I call them kemono. I continue to use art to get closer to this goal.
