PROFILE

s_TAKUROMAN_NFT_artcross.jpg

I want to know, express, and communicate the world.
That's all. 

What I have learned through my activities as an artist is
that there is so much beauty in the world, and that I cannot see them all.

But perhaps each beauty has something in common.
Perhaps the essence of beauty is universal.

If this is the case, I would like to learn more about beauty in the world, to get closer to the essence of beauty, and to express and convey beauty by myself.

I believe that this is not the work of an artist, but rather an innate human desire and the essence of communication.

TAKUROMAN

Profile

I couldn't forget my dream to become a Manga artist from childhood, I enrolled at a Manga art school at the age of 35. I had the great fortune to be directly instructed by Ms. Masae Takakuwa, the author of Human Body Croquis, the art instruction manual that impressed me at the time. Based on the premise that "Art Happens", I draw inspiration from shapes that appear while I'm drawing, and these inform the theme of each of my works. I've named this method the Self-Drawing Feedback Concept Method. I was suddenly caught by Hernia and brought by ambulance. I couldn't even walk at that time and I realized "People cannot truly know the pain of other people." Then I made the NFT collection "Hernia & Peace" to share feelings, respect and pray for each other.
