Until now, paintings have determined various elements such as location, color, shape, composition, size, material, medium, technique, sensibility, originality, and so on, imposing (compelling) these upon the viewer.


The viewer has no choice but to accept them. In other words, when an artist expresses a painting in a specific form, it inevitably creates constraints and a lack of freedom for the viewer.


I believe the painting closest to freedom is one where colors, shapes, expressions, and such are akin to something being generated within the brain of each individual viewer. Paintings should be reborn as something imagined and created within one's own head. If such a painting existed, it could liberate viewers from these constraints and a lack of freedom.


This is a new form of painting. This painting liberates viewers from constraints and a lack of freedom, making paintings that are bound to conventional forms a thing of the past.


Imagine this.

Many people around the world picture that Mona Lisa in their minds, right? Most individuals would probably visualize roughly the same image. But this new painting is different. This new painting allows people around the world, across time and space, to conjure up their own individual images within their heads.


The bare minimum necessary idea for expression (the minimal constraint) is given, but without it, there would be no expression. From this idea as a starting point, each individual imagines and creates in their own colors, shapes, expressions, and interpretations.

A heart symbol is drawn with a thick outline. The heart is divided into upper and lower halves at about the middle, using the same line width as the outline.

(Can you imagine what is depicted in this painting? Here, a message that says I love smiles is depicted. Can you see it?


The heart drawn in outline is divided into an upper and lower part by a horizontal line. The upper part forms a shape similar to the number 3 lying on its side, as if two semi-circles are side by side. The lower part, on the other hand, forms a shape like a V, with the lines smoothly curving down from the ends of the upper semi-circles and broadening at the opened part, or so I believe.


If you perceive the upper part as eyes and the lower part as a mouth, doesn't it look like a smile? This means that in this painting, a heart, which generally signifies love, and a smile are depicted as one entity.


The universal message, I love smiles, is expressed in the simplest way.)
