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).     See more of Ryoichi Nakamura’s work here.
