* Jimmy Onishi *
He is active in many programs using his natural character and shocking laughter as his weapon.
A comedian who is also famous for his many spontaneous episodes and has many one-shot gags. He presented his paintings on Yomiuri TV’s “Jimmy Onishi’s debut in the art world” and received praise from experts.
* Comment from Jimmy Onishi *
This is my first time having a solo exhibition in Nagasaki! And Jimmy was filled with excitement and excitement as he was given the chance to do it in such a splendid place, the Nagasaki Museum of History and Culture!
Once upon a time, Nagasaki was the only place in Japan that was open to Europe and where many cultures from overseas were introduced. When Jimmy also became a painter, he lived and painted in Spain and then traveled to many European countries. The culture and experiences he encountered there are still alive in Jimmy’s paintings today. I think it is very meaningful to be able to start this “hometown” from Nagasaki. We hope that everyone in Nagasaki will enjoy it as well. * Jimmy Onishi “Hometown” *
