Message from Pinky Ring (added Jan.22):

The second and third photos were taken on the day before the opening after sonsen-nim installed the works.
That is why it is so quiet^^

Because I wanted to capture the atmosphere of the venue, I took these photos when the place was empty, with the permission of sonsen-nim.
(taking of photos is prohibited during the actual exhibit).

His lecture attracted a large crowd of 550 attendants, and the exhibit area was full of many visitors as well. From time to time, sonsen-nim gave detailed explanations of each of his works.

I am a little late leaving my thanks to you and pinky ring-san. Sorry, I was "distracted" by Won-nim.

I hope the deserted exhibition hall and quiet front desk do not mean that attendance was low.

Konnichiwa gosijo-san,

According to Pinky Ring, sonsen-nim's lecture attracted approximately 550 people - the highest attendance in the history of the Center in Osaka^^

Thank you flowerbossa and Pinky Ring for the update. I was wondering the same thing gosijo brought up the other day, it’s good to know the attendance was actually very good.

Hello yudi,

Yes, please refer to the comment from Pinky Ring I added today.

I'm sure many people are looking forward to this opportunity of appreciating sonsen-nim's works first hand^^

Hello Hyds,

Pinky Ring-san is happy to share these photos with you.

I admire how sonsen-nim is always searching for new ways of expression thru urushi (japan). He says he still has so many things he wants to do!
