I have loved manga and anime since I was a child and often imitated them and drew them. The character-based drawings I used to draw for children at the time came from my background as a childcare worker in Sydney.
“Love” “Happiness” “Smile” through “ELF” and “HAPPY PEOPLE”
It depicts four themes: “kindness.”
This time, I sprayed acrylic paint on the subcultures that I think of in “4 themes + etc.”
Expressed using marker technique. I also tried using a different style of characters and colors than usual.
I am honored to have a solo exhibition at Mr. Yonehara’s gallery, which continues to disseminate subculture from a place called Harajuku.
― Gaku Igarashi

* ●From curator Yasumasa Yonehara*
Although the world is supposed to be created as a collective, Each person is very unique.
The more we try to be the same,
I feel like the difference is noticeable.
When people ask me what world GAKU depicts
“A work that brings It’s a Small World to the streets”
What I try to answer is,
This is simply because I see GAKU’s work as diversity within a collective.

PEACE BEGINS WITH SMILE
DO WHAT MAKES YOUR HEART HAPPY
