`` Because it is boiled at 100% firewood, the hot water is very soft and warms well from the core of the body '' Takatsuyu. Kawasaki Frontale has also been excited about “Freunda ~ re together”, but closed in 2015 while being regretted.

That is now the artist's shared office and gallery. The building is used as it is, and its name is “Ohofoso”.
I heard a rumor, so I ’ll come in for a moment!
Oh! The letters of Takatsuyu remain. Actually, my husband and my child took care of me long ago when my house was unable to use the bath due to construction. I regret that I should have taken a bath at that time. I thought it was embarrassing to meet a neighbor. Lol

The black stand is full of retro feeling, but it was normally used until several years ago, so even in Heisei, it was soaked in the scent of Showa in Takatsuyu.

Now, if you go through the women's bath, you will find artists' studios.
-image-191691 "src =" "alt =" "width =" 6000 "height =" 4000 "/> Undressing space There are contemporary decorator Kohei Kyomori, artist yutaokuda, and flower artist Takashi Shirakawa, and there are three creators in the space with a bathtub, including music and dyeing.

Mr. Kyomori's works, whose colorful graphics are eye-catching, have a Japanese motif and impressive Western nuances. It is said that studying in Italy for two years has become an opportunity to think about identity as a Japanese, and at the same time, eliminating prejudice and discrimination among ethnic groups through art has become a major theme of production.

▲ Depth feeling due to partially raised ink

“From the history of cross-border and cultural development that has been influenced by decorativeness, I think it would be a force to eliminate the gap between ethnic groups,” says Kyomori. The work shows a skull (skull) motif and Aun. Through the world-wide concept, life and death, it raises questions about human equality to the viewer.

On the other hand, Yutaokuda is characterized by detailed monochrome expressions.
The motifs drawn with fine lines starting from 0.03 mm have many animals and plants, and some elegance drifts.

"I think it was originally from the fashion field."
Yuutaokuda, who speaks so, became an artist after working as a designer of fashion brand “TAKEO KIKUCHI”.

Inspired by the view of the world expressed by Alexander McQueen, he went on the path of fashion, but noticed that McQueen was not a fashion designer, but an artist, and that he was aiming for a habit.

“Art is the same as self-projection, expressing yourself. It ’s the same as praising yourself if there ’s someone who says you like your work because you ca n’t be deceived. It ’s the driving force for painting. ”

It is strange to share with Mr. Kyomori that he is from Istituto Marangoni, the oldest clothing and design school in Italy. Kyomori was in Italy and yutaokuda was in London, but I met him in Japan a few years after graduation. Life is interesting!
And aiming at a high level, the relationship that can give stimulation is really wonderful.
▲ Everyone, look forward to the monthly scheduled flights

“We choose flowers with the intuition of the day we went to the market. The producers are working hard and growing various kinds of nuanced flowers, so the tension goes up. “I want to feel more flexible than arranging them,” says Shirakawa. The bouquet is not designed by design, but lightly combined with the consciousness of handling nature.

Now, if you go through the men's bath, there is a salon and gallery space. I miss the invader game platform.
The public bath space with tile floors, faucets, showers, and mirrors is an event space. It has become a place for various artists to express, but the fun that is not the White Cube seems to spark the creator spirit.

“It would be nice to have a place where you can come into contact with art and creation like a public bath where you can go.” NENGO Miho Nakamura who is.

▲ If you visit NENGO in the same Takatsu Ward, Dora instead of a doorbell!

Unfortunately, Ofuroso is limited to September 2020.
Mr. Kyomori and YutaokudaSince there are already highly acclaimed artists overseas, I want you to be like Tokiwa-so in the manga world. I'm just excited to imagine that the artist's eggs grow from here.
It was a place related to ceramic artist Shoji Hamada and artist Taro Okamoto, and I strongly wanted it to be a sacred place unique to the Oyama Highway neighborhood where cultural people came and went.
