Luca Curci – What is art for you?
Kayano Ushiyama –
Art is a tool that spreads happiness to the world through works.

LC – How did you get to your current artistic practice?

I was always looking for a place to present my work, especially because I wanted to exhibit it in London.

LC – Where do you find your inspiration?
KU –
In my daily work, I often get inspiration from the message from space and the beauty of nature, and in my work, I express the light, wind, moisture, particles, animals and plants in the forest. I hope to deliver happy energy to everyone.

LC – What is the most challenging part about creating your artworks?
KU –
Nothing in particular.

LC – Do you use art to express something in particular? Is it like your medium of expression?
KU –
As I said in the first question, this is to spread happiness to the world through work.
