December 07, 2016Solo Exhibition held at Renaissance Atyrau Hotel was completed.
Tomoko Hokyo Solo Exhibition –Destination of Pain/Sadness Breeding- held at Renaissance Atyrau Hotel was completed.
I really appreciated that a lot of people visited my solo exhibition although the outside temperature was really cold.
In this exhibition, I announced my works with new theme which is related to my childhood. I was really glad that a lot of people in Kazakhstan accepts my works with new theme.
After my graduation from university, I worked as an illustrator between 2007 to 2010. Origin of my new works is the works when I was an illustrator, and I challenged that I could mixture Japanese art and Illustration.
I thought that everyone would like to see Japanese traditional style, and apologized that I couldn’t exhibit Japanese traditional style this time, however everyone said to me that “Japan means Animation!”, and felt really glad.
Utilizing precious experience this time, I’ll continue to prepare new works in the future.
Once again, thank you very much for visiting my solo exhibition!
