It is 10 years ago that we worked with Keiichi INOUE for the first time in the same year this
gallery was opened. His attitude toward painting has not changed at all ever since.
It would be rare to see a person who enjoy facing one's own expression as freely and purely
as him from the bottom of heart.
This is the third exhibition for him in this gallery. We are looking forward to see how he
shows us his world this time.
