Concept of the show

It might seem I’m just playing around, but there’s more to it. I put 50% playfulness and 50% seriousness.

When I draw, I want to show my childlike naïveté and innocence. I had to deal with some pretty tough times in my teenage years to early adulthood. I know how difficult it is to persevere such pure feelings. Now I am an adult, I still wanna keep that sincere, genuine, innocent, and childlike heart to get by.

ふざけてるようでふざけてない。50%の遊びと50%の真剣。僕が絵お描くときにいつも考えてるのが童心です。15歳で社会に出てる僕にとって、まともな童心を実感したことがない僕にとって, 童心をキープする事がどれだけ大切だかわかります。なので絵を描くときは子供並みに何もかも忘れるて,純粋な気持ちで描いてます。大人になってもまだ50%の童心をキープしながら生きてます。

About the Artist:

Born in Seattle in 1998, Alvan Sakurai was raised in a boutique designer furniture business.
Heavily influenced and inspired by street culture and graffiti pop art, he uses canvases, installations and coutures to reimagine the seemingly-chaotic yet rich and vibrant energy that he experienced in New York.

1998年、アメリカ・シアトル出身。ブティック家具デザイナービジネスの環境で育つ。
ストリートカルチャーやグラフィティポップアートに強く影響を受け、そのインスピレーションをキャンバスに映し出す。ニューヨークで見た一見カオスだがエネルギッシュな世界を作品に再現している。
