"Although I believed there is no goal for art and just keep drawing, my brain has almost bursted to hear I can hold my first exhibition at the Louvre Museum where most artists are long for to hold their exhibition. I’d be very happy if many people come to feel me.
I would be happy if people all around the world could experience the "les âmes en résonance" of my favorite French and Japanese in Paris!
