Itoshima is a city located in Fukuoka Prefecture, which is surrounded by sea and mountains, and also nurturing rich nature. Takeshi’s art works are created in an old blacksmith’s shop as renovated to be his atelier there. The portrait paintings fill with sorrow and the still-life paintings of winter melon, which is full of energy, are painted on the hand-made panels or nature wood boards. The pleasant objects are made from the driftwood or waste lumbers that were found by the artist while he was taking a walk along the beach. Full of poetic sentiment and tenderness, Takeshi Wei’s art works’ world exists between the life of an art painter and a human itself. Please enjoy the exhibition.
