Contemporary romance symbol painter
Ukyo Kagetsu KAGETSU UKYO

MAKIKO INUI: Makiko Inui

Expression. It is the act of diving deep inside. The act of connecting far and far. The act of transforming something that comes down. An act that has meaning in that mundane. The act of exposing the inner surface, which is both emotional and cold.

Until he entered the world in painting, he promoted self-taught expression through prejudice and insistence.

As the turning point in life approaches, we come to the final conclusion that no matter where we are or what we learn, how we judge and utilize it is important.

For three years from 2011, from the age of 37, he went to Tokyo alone and studied painting at an art school. Obtained a diploma qualification three years later.

Returned to his hometown of Matsumoto at the age of 40. While asking myself again the meaning of old romanticism and the old symbolism of its farewell, I continue to the present.

Immature in every aspect. The road to becoming an ideal artist is endless.

I will do my best every day to get closer.
