Art, like daily food, is an absolute necessity for human life. Life itself, to live. Taro Okamoto, who had such a thought, sent art into his daily life through all channels. The area of expression covers all kinds of genres, from the Tower of the Sun to tie pins. What is distinctive is that we have actively sent out multiple works that can be mass-produced. Taro was happy to create a "omake" by pushing the opposition around him, saying, "My career will hurt me." What was in the undercurrent was the view of art that "art is not part of mania or rich, but people's." I created a lot of public art all over the country, and I created a free bonus, all of which was from the idea that art is life itself. One of the media that Taro put his most effort into is prints. It might have thought that it was possible to enter the average of people's lives if it printed. Using a variety of techniques such as lithographs, etchings, silkscreens, and woodblock readings, Taro left behind a variety of prints. Please enjoy your first exhibition focusing on prints.
