``Because it is boiled with 100% firewood, the water is very soft and it feels good on the skin and warms up from the core of the body,'' says a public bath that has been loved by the locals for many years, at a location that is a 2-minute walk from Takatsu Station on the Tokyu Denentoshi Line. Takatsuyu. Kawasaki Frontale was also excited to say, “Float together,” but closed in 2015, while being missed.

That is now the artist's shared office and gallery. "Ofuro-so" is the same name as the building.
I've heard the rumor, so I'll come in a bit! Instead, I'll go~.
The source is sensitive to the five senses O! The characters of Takatsuyu remain as they are. To tell the truth, my husband and children took care of me when my home couldn't use a bath long ago. When I think about it now, I regret that I should have taken a bath at that time. I thought it would be embarrassing to meet a neighbor. Lol

A black phone on the stand is full of retro feeling, but since it was used normally until a few years ago, even in Heisei-born, Takatsuyu was fully immersed in the scent of Showa.

By the way, if you go through the women's bath, it will be an artist's atelier.

Kyomori-san's work, whose colorful graphics are eye-catching, has a Japanese motif and a Western nuance. He says that studying abroad in Italy for two years provided an opportunity to think about his identity as a Japanese, and at the same time, eliminating the prejudice and discrimination among ethnic groups through art became a major theme of his production.

“From the history of cultural development that transcends national borders and is influenced by decorativeness, I think that creating the same sensation among ethnic groups can help eliminate gaps,” says Kyomori. The work shows a skull motif and Aun. Through the universal concept of life and death, we are asking the viewer a question about human equality.

There are many animals and plants in the motif drawn with fine lines from 0.03 mm, and there is elegance somewhere. You

"Maybe it's because we started from a fashion field."
Yutaokuda, who talks so, became an artist after becoming a designer for the fashion brand "TAKEO KIKUCHI".

Inspired by Alexander McQueen's view of the world, he went on to fashion, but he realized that McQueen was an artist, not a fashion designer, and he was distracted.

“Art is the same as self-projection, expressing yourself as a person. Because there is no cheating, it's the same as praising yourself when someone tells you that you like your work. It's the driving force behind painting.''

As a matter of strangeness with Mr. Kyomori, there is a common point that she is from Istituto Marangoni, the oldest fashion and design school in Italy. It seems that Mr. Kyomori was at an Italian school and Mr. yutaokuda was at a London school, but I met him a few years after graduation in Japan. Life is interesting!
And, the relationship that aims to reach a high level and inspires each other is really wonderful.

I think Ofuroso is good because of the existence of flowers. Like art, it is an important element that enriches the mind. Mr. Shirakawa of (hana-naya), who also handles spatial displays such as apparel, was a bright personality who soon became a fan of "Nice to meet you." According to the two artists, it's a fun big brother. In the summer, three people will hold an "Ofuroso Beginning Exhibition".

“Women love flowers, and I want to deliver them to people who still want to go buy flowers but can't because of aging and poor physical condition. Mr. Shirakawa, who says, was riding a fashionable three-wheeled bicycle in the Nakameguro neighborhood and selling mobile in addition to selling at the store.

“The choice of flowers is made with the intuition of the day when I went to the market. The producers are doing their best and growing various nuanced flowers, so the tension rises. I want to feel more flexible than lining up," says Shirakawa. The lightness of combining bouquets in a light design, rather than making them into a design.

Now, if you go through the men's bath, you will find a salon and gallery space. The base of the invader game is nostalgicGood

It's a place for various artists to express themselves, but the fun that is not the White Cube seems to inspire the creators. The source is sensitive to the five senses

"It would be nice if there is a place where you can come into contact with art and creation like a public bath where you can go flat. With that in mind, the flavor of the public bath remains as it is," he says. Ms. Miho Nakamura, who is a NENGO.

Unfortunately, Ofuroso is only available until September 2020.
Ms. Kyomori and yutThere is already an artist with a high reputation overseas, called aokuda, so I want you to become like Tokiwa-so in the manga world. It's exciting just to imagine the artist eggs growing from here.
It is a land related to the potter Shoji Hamada and the artist Taro Okamoto, and I strongly hope that it will be a sacred place unique to the Oyama Kaido neighborhood where many cultural people came and go.
