I'm grateful for the opportunity to exhibit a new series of paintings "series 731.

This series of paintings is intended to show and remember the state of the Japanese medical community,
which has been consistently glimpsed from the problems of Unit 731 to the response to coronavirus in the postwar period.
In creating this work, I collaborated with two professors emeritus of Keio University,
Dr. Takao Matsumura and Dr. Aiko Kurasawa.
On the day of the event, I will play a slide show with music,
which was created to accompany the requiem poem for the victims of Unit 731
read by these two professors.

A former editor who saw my painting "The Monster of the Far East Reappears After 70 Years,"
which is based on the issue of historical revisionism in Japan,
which has reached its peak under the Shinzo Abe administration,
gave me the opportunity to create and present this new painting.

I would like to express my sincere gratitude to
all those who worked so hard to connect me with this very precious opportunity,
and to God for making it all possible.

Please note that due to the size of the venue,
reservations will be closed on a first-come, first-served basis.
