“Derori” is a word coined by the Japanese painter Ryusei Kishida. The word expresses a grotesque and mysterious world and it can be regarded as a notion that penetrates deeply into Japanese art. On the present occasion, several painters of the younger generation are challenging this subject, and both the young and experienced painters will compete in attempting to capture the characteristics of “derori”.

The perspective of the artist
There were a number of humorous art
works in the history of Japanese art. It definitely has a great influence on
today’s Manga and animation. However, much less attention has been paid to these Japanese paintings as far as I am concerned. My works reflect the playful aspect repecting
the conventional materials and techniques, yet the idea is rather in the perspective of our time. I hope that by reconsidering the essence of the matter could enrich our mind.
