Hanging is done...the exhibition started...
It's been a quite stressful few weeks of learning how to frame paintings properly.
Buying a lot of materials, orderd the wrong ones, wathching YouTube videos, asking advise for framers. (Many thanks to my local framer Frame Factory Ten for advice.) I'm still learning and trying to get better framing skills, but I have learned so much about it in a last few weeks.
Thanks so much as well for all the helpful and supportive team in Cass Art Hampstead.
Now the show began, so please pop in to see 11 of my new paintings!

I had a great time selling my original tote bag at The Sunday Artisan Market in Hampstead the other day despite the weather.
It was a fun and interesting experience as I got to know how people reacted to my bag.
It’s exciting to think about purchaser using it somewhere and my art on the bag is being exposed to public…
Next time I will try East London market.
A couple who were selling incense next to my stall recommend me to try markets in East London as they believe my style definitely fits the arty scene in East London. Wow it’s exciting….to be continued..

I made my first original tote bag while I stayed in Japan for 3 months last year due to my mother’s illness. I can’t remember how this idea came up but I remember I was so excited when I created one.
Since then this idea has been always in my head….
And now I’m happy to announce that I will open my little shop to sell my tote bag at The Sunday Artisan Market in Hampstead .
It will be on Sunday 23rd Feburary.
A tiny shop with just one table but I’m really excited and the same time I’m a bit nervous because I have never done this before. It’s truly my new adventure.
My tote bags are not printed ones. I created my painting directly on each blank tote bag . It’s One & Only. There will be no other tote bag in the world. If you purchase it, YOU are the only one who has it.
The Sunday Artisan Market will be held at Hampstead community Centre. It is only 3 minute walk from Hampstead station on Northern Line.
Market will open at 10am and close at 6pm. It’s indoor market so you can wondering around nicely on even rainy day. I will be there all day.
Hope see you there.

The last gig and solo exhibition at Namiya in Japan were
finished. It’s been 3 months since I arrived on 8th August as my mother went into a critical condition.
It is a miracle that she survived. She went through a lot but now she is recovered and having intensive physiotherapy. I’m relieved and happy.
So many things happened under my circumstances. I met a lots of new people.
I really think I’m a very lucky man because all these people are very supportive to me and led me take to a new direction in my life.
I appreciate them from the bottom of my heart and would like to say huge thank you. New challenges is waiting for me and I’m happy to take action.
Ps My paintings are still available from Namiya until the end of 2019.

Especially I have learned a lot by doing live painting.
How I should focus on energy within in front of audience and how I should release it back to the audience.
Abstract painting should be enjoyed by your totally free perception but some people are struggling to understand how to see as they tried to intellectualised.
They seemed to look into my paintings.
Thanks so much for everyone who came to see me. I really appreciate it.
