[Introduction]
Director / Scriptwriter - Shohei SHIOZAKI
About: This long film is the story of a talented painter from Nara prefecture.
Kenpei YUNDE painted all the works in the film and we can see plenty of his works.



Kenpei YUNDE is an artist to the core. I thought like this when I heard his comment for my phone-call.
he said “I can’t go out anywhere because of Corona, so I just engage in painting in the atelier. I finished much more works.”
His concepts, “From the footing, from the soil”, expresses in the specific painting style of repeating the process of glazing and scraping more than 50 layers through one year.
He says “Since this world’s value is dramatically changing, I want everyone to enjoy and feel my works. All of them have the voice of soil and put down the roots in the earth.
This is the best time for Kenpei YUNDE’s exhibition. We really look forward to seeing you in our gallery. – Kazunobu Abe, Mizoe Art Gallery
