Artist Cai Guohua sketching everyday life in Japan
Saturday, September 27, 2008
Finally I've got to the weekend. Yesterday I drank too much, because I've had such a pressure toward the term end. And yet business is getting worse and worse. Wise men, please tell me what should I do.
I have a friend, Cai Guohua, who was born and brought up in Shanghai and now lives in Tokyo.
He is an outstanding artist who can draw the essence of the object. He always carries a sketchbook with him and makes rapid but vivid sketches of people whom he comes across every here and there, such as on a commuter train, at a coffee shop, in a park and so on. Those who he draws are very ordinary Japanese people, young and old, with thousands of murmurings in mind. In this site I will try to pick up some of those murmurings.
You may see his sketches as well as their actual feelings and thoughts in life.
