Happy new year and i hope it will be a great year for all.

 It is been a while since i posted a last blog because  i was actually busy to prepare for my first exhibition.

From January 7th to 12th i joined the joint exhibition of painters in Mireya gallery which is located in Ginza.(Ginza area is a kinda mecca of art freaks so there are hundreds of art galleries!)

That was my very first time exhibition now just finished so I feel somewhat relieved that done properly without any accident.

This joint exhibition theme was "Happy new sheep year"(Cause in Japanese zodiac 2015 is the year of sheep)

 I displayed 5 art works. so i introduce and explain 5 of them.

 1.Bashful Lamb

 I made it for this exhibition.

Lamb,She is holding and drinking a Melon soda float(Japanese style ice cream soda;Soda water is colored a brilliant green with melon syrup. Then a scoop of rich vanilla ice cream and A maraschino cherry is added on top) and look and smile bashful her boyfriend suppose to be sitting opposite side of her, not drawn in the painting though.

In order to highlight pink lamb i used a complementary color green for drink(Melon soda float).

Materials: Acryl Gouache,pink sheep wool,Medium,Glitter powder,seals,magazine;mixed media

2. Ganesha's day off

I posted before but i explain it again.

I am interested in mystery and fantasy like gods,fairies,witches/wizards,magic and so on...especially i am attracted by Ganesha;one of the gods of Hindu.

Ganesha,it is actually a male though in my painting it transformed to female.

If Ganesha,she had a day-off without any worries she lies down on her bed and drinking,talking on her cellphone,eating chocolate&Ramen noodles same time using 4 hands.

She can be lazy only for today and near on her shoulders there was a Rat(In hindu's story Ganesha is shown seated on a rat. The reason for saying that Ganesha 'rides' on the rat is that the rat is among the greediest of all animals.)went wild and drinking a beer!

At first i just wanted to draw Ganesha itself  then i  thought about what situation is interesting ...and this idea came up to me.

Materials: Acryl Gouache,Hologram paper,plastic bag,fake flower,ribbon,nail art stones,beads,fountain pen;mixed media

3.Ganesha's B-day party

After i made "Ganesha's day off "painting my teacher of art school advised me  to continue this Ganesha themed series.So i decided to go on.

This is my second Ganesha themed painting.It took 2 months to finish.and this is the biggest painting F15,what i drawn in canvas.

For Ganesha's Birthday party gods from world came to celebrate her in her room.

It reflects my thought ,put everything what i like in this painting.

From the left Venus,Tengu(one of Japanese gods of wind lives in Mountain) ,Jesus christ,Ganesha,Buddha,Anubis,Fire bird and bottom of the middle Angel (eating ice cream)

                        Image of Tengu

I placed characters like a painting"last supper" by Leonard DaVinci and placed gods of different culture i put the thought "Peace" into this painting,without any fear and fight people of the world gather together and laugh each other.

Materials:Acryl Gouache,glitter powder,nail art stones,Medium,seals,polymer clay,Origami,decopatch paper,ribbon tapes,spangles, fountain pen :mixed media

I post this picture.

I choose "Ganesha",one of the Hindu's God for this painting .

If Ganesha had a day off, she(Actually it is male though in my painting it is a girl) laid down on her bed and using four hands eating,drinking,Scratching,talking on her cellphone in the same time.

I am interested in fairytales,Gods of the world,Magic,Japanese pop culture, american toys and Vivid colors,especially pink.

 I want to mix and fuse these things together and express myself through my art work. 

My skill is not enough so i am not satisfied though actually i continue this theme,Ganesha as series so now i am making another Ganesha themed painting.
