A sleepy shark is a shark that is inactive during the day as if it is sleeping. Using the name “dream”, he creates works with the keyword “dream” and attempts to blur the boundaries between reality and dreams.
The expression method of stuffed animals and illustrations is something that has always been in the artist’s bed since he was a child.
Indulge yourself in using it.

WACCA ART” is a project to find new perspectives on facilities and communities through art, and to create unprecedented “connections” and “initiatives” from there.
Since the 7th anniversary event “Gallery Show” held two years ago, we have been fortunate to receive many consultations regarding the use of the space. We organized facilities and local themes.
Under these circumstances, we are currently aiming for a place that accepts a variety of edgy concepts, rather than advocating a single strong concept. As a result, “WACCA ART” was launched as a project to support exhibitions, etc., targeting art that presents new values. From now on, I would like to introduce various arts at WACCA through exhibitions and other events.
However, we also accept projects that you bring in, so if you are interested, please visit the site below and work together on this project.
General Incorporated Association Meets by Arts Planning and production Meets by Arts considers “art” to be something that allows us to discover the values of its creator, and something that allows us to come into contact with the way of thinking, perspectives, and values of people other than ourselves. By coming into contact with such art, we believe that learning new ways of thinking and values is important for creating diversity and tolerance. We run a planning school and various coordination businesses that connect the region and art.
