【Gallery Notes】



I started drawing pet portraits when I was working in the main business company’s pet-related department, and through the company’s campaign of drawing customers’ pets as a gift; that was the beginning.
I liked drawing pictures from a young age, and idolized the workers who drew the posters for the theaters. My parents' house in Kyoto is a kimono shop, and I went to a Kaga Yuzen store in Ningyocho, Tokyo. While associating with a writer of Yuzen, I thought that I wanted to become a Yuzen writer. However, as the kimono industry declined I turned off to work as the current salaried workman I am today, and I was distanced from painting.
I came to draw again with the pet drawing campaign as a turning point. Pictures of pets are drawn while imagining the owner recieving the artwork with a smile on their face. Rather than appealing yourself, I would be satisfied if I could make happy with the person who saw the picture.

If you simply drew the subject as pictured, anyone can do it to some extent if they are a good artist. However, in the case of Mr. Takema, he also reads the character of each of kitty and doggy through the image provided by the owner. Therefore, the gaze pointing to the viewing subject is very warm, and there is something that appeals from the picture. It has already reached a level of portraiture beyond just drawing what you see. In addition, it is amazing to draw this picture with a ballpoint pen. There are not many people who can draw detailed pictures so far with a ballpoint pen. We think that it will be a fine piece of art if you decorate such a picture by Mr. Takema's, in a frame. (Takanori Aiba)

【Gallery Notes】



I love British movies in the 1920s - 1940s, and am always repeatedly watching about 100 works that are said to be masterpieces. My favorite actors are Robert Donat, Leslie Howard, Gary Cooper, and Peter O'Toole. I have to have a tall and handsome man (laugh). When I'm not drawing a picture or when I am not watching a movie, I am reading books. I am quite the nerd. When you watch such movies or read books, the idea of an ​​"artwork" often comes to mind.
Another thing is that when I am shopping at a neighboring grocery store or sweet shop (I surprisingly have a reputation for being quite good at cooking), for example, when I look at fresh cauliflower, I have an “aha” moment that makes me want to draw it.
I think color is personality = character. Some are cheerful and others are gloomy. Some children are good at mathematics, others are weak. I just use my favorite colors.
Looking at my picture, Japanese people say "It's very Paris-like", but people in Paris say "it’s very Japanese" (laugh). I have never studied painting, nor have I been to painting school. Just self-study, I just draw as I like. The perspectives of the artwork are all over the place because I don’t know the basics. Perspective is also often messed up in old Japanese paintings, so that is probably my artwork is said to be "Japanese-style." (Ueda Yoko)
Ueda is one of my favorite painters. First, the colors are wonderful. I think there is a sense of color born within her like the "absolute pitch". The distinctive texture of gouache (opaque watercolor paint) is also very prominent. The overall balance and exquisite composition is very comforting to me. And above all, the feeling of the "Spirit of Paris" in her background portrayed through the art is wonderful. Please come and enjoy a momentary trip to Paris. (Takanori Aiba)

Exhibition of "Team Monzee" Founder Yuki Uesako "Team Monzee" Exhibition

GET READY FOR WORLD WAR 3 GET YOUR DRIVER

Today, Team Monsie will carry out a solo exhibition at the Tokyo Ogodome gallery. There is somewhat of a discomfort in 2017. When something goes crazy, war starts. A year of feeling such a sense of crisis began. I feel that more peaceful thought is necessary. With such themes as subjects, I am transferring to golf items using scrap materials. Now please fight for PEACE with your driver as well.

【Gallery Notes】
I started playing golf since I was 10 years old, and around me, golf items were always overflowing. While helping my mother's brand of golf wear, I thought, "I want to own something I made by myself", hence I started making original headcovers. At first, I made head covers of various animals such as monkeys and lions with stuffed material, but there was something that I really liked which I didn’t sell; a donkey. One time, the idea of ​​making this donkey with a camouflage pattern of vintage material was born. Originally I liked to go to the flea market, so when I went to the nation's largest antique show held at Roosevelt Flea Market and Brimfield on the outskirts of Boston, and thought "Is there anything that can be used for golf items?". We looked around for material to increase the variations of the donkey.
This theme is "Against War". Something is wrong in the world in 2017. No wonder any war will happen. So, for peace, let's fight with a driver. While putting out such a message, carefully handmakes each and every driver. (Yuki Uesako)
When I met Uesako’s golf bag and head cover, I felt his “desire to express” very much. Beyond the concept of golf items, I found myself trying to find something different within and beyond these pieces. If added value comes out of decorating it as an artwork in the space that is an art gallery, rather than the usual shop window, Uesako may be able to seek something new through this - with such expectation, we produced this exhibition.
