Mini Interview with RYOICHI NAKAMURA:

Your childhood ambition:

I wanted to work like my father as a Salaryman.

Something you treasure:

My family history.

Your worst habit:

Watching Japanese comedy shows on YouTube and reading manga.

The aspect of your work that’s most important to you:

Painting is a way of representing “what I am”: the way I react to what goes on around me, but also how I think of the past and the future. To paint is to reflect; to collect fleeting memories and to see what further insights we may glean from them.

Your first job:

A part-time job at a pizza restaurant. I prepped pizzas and baked them.

Someone whose work you highly recommend:

Ken Domon (a Japanese photographer).
