Year of (Program) Commencement

Based on his extensive experience, he has continuously held lectures titled “How to apply for residence and receive a grant” across Japan. So far, he has advised more than 140 young Japanese artists and helped them in conducting their activities. Recently he served as a director of Flax Art Studios, an Artist-in-Residence program in Northern Ireland, as the only Japanese resident artist there. He also introduced Japanese artists to Northern Ireland. He worked as a curator at the art festival “Arafudo Art Annual,” focusing on international exchanges between Japan and abroad.
