Lakshmi Venkatesh—Santa Clara, California
"Every step on the Earth felt like a step off it, closer to Mars, or something fantastic..."The artwork is a part of a series dedicated to a few prestigious U.S. parks, based on the emotion that each place evokes. Souvenirs and photographs may remind the viewer of the beauty, but I want to transport the viewer to the magical journey that one experiences in these captivating places.

Yasuka Fukuoka—Fukuoka, Japan
I am the artist who draws with my soul and five senses without being bound by common sense. The world of my artwork is "輪廻転生 / samsara" which is reincarnation around the lives of living things. The main artwork is paintings, video animations, installation works, and picture book creation. While I am creating, I wish that the power of expression and art will change the world and spread smiles in the world.
