Shigeru Eguchi 江口繁

My works are based on my imagination, inspired by folk tales, myths, fairy stories, and folklore.
Reality is the mother of fantasy; imagination is a seed of reality.
Our future depends on what we imagine.
I strive to release the products of my imagination without restriction.

Painting, that's my tool communicating with people.
Because I'm not good at explaining myself in word.
I am attracted to something that evoke great nostlagia, and something that never changes even if time goes by.
I love places that is peaceful and relieves me. Places that I could imagine peoples living , their lives, historys and so on.
I'm always looking for various designs that fits my concept. And then I draw rough design to express it.
I draw girls as mischievous youngster with a pop feeling and an oracle.
Reason I draw female is because I feel men element in females.
I don't want to get caught up in reality . I enjoy drawing the feelings and appearance freely, inside my own imagination.
The girls are storytellers of my world.
I will appreciate and be blessed if people who see my work can feel the empathy, that I enjoy creating my Art work very much.
