Painting exhibition [painting with mouth and foot] & Minami Masafumi work exhibition [joy seed]

The Artist Association, which draws with its mouth and feet, is a group of painters who draw with its mouth and feet without having both hands. Starting in 1956 in Europe, it has expanded its activities in 72 countries and regions around the world, and has been active in Japan from 1961 to 58. Painters are deprived of the freedom of hands important to the art aspiration for various reasons such as diseases and accidents, but they keep paintings in their mouths and feet for independence, aiming to achieve independence.

In this exhibition, under the theme of "thank you for art", the message "Thank you for HEART", with the theme of "Thank you for HEART", is a mouth and mouth so that many people can freely view the paintings of the painters who draw with their mouth and foot. I will exhibit the paintings I drew with my feet. During the exhibition, you can watch production demonstrations by painters who draw with their mouths and feet. In addition, we display and sell original goods of the picture drawn by the mouth and foot.

I hope that you will have a chance to see the worlds on which the painters with disabilities express on the canvas, feel their courage and live in direct contact with the painters.

At the same time, we will hold an exhibition of works by Masashi Minami, who has been active as a Japanese painter who draws by mouth. It would be appreciated if you could see the many paintings of the author's dedicated effort, vitality, and rich sensibility in Japanese paintings.
