Art Residency at Akiyoshidai International Art Village.
12 Dec til 27 Dec 2015., I attended a two weeks residency program at Akiyoshidai International Art Villlage, Japan . As part of the residency program, I conducted a watercolor workshop to 10 participants from Yamaguchi prefecture. The response to workshop was great and one participant even wrote a letter to the director of AIAV and expressed immense satisfaction. Throughout my residency, I completed a total of 12 paintings and about 40 sketches.
I have personally donated 11 of the 12 paintings to the staffs of Akiyoshidai International Art Village. One painting went to a special friend.
Special thanks to the National Art Council of Singapore for supporting my residency. Many thanks to the good folks at AIAV for facilitating with my residency
Akiyoshidai International Art Village was pretty amazing.
Walking for groceries, I often pass by this car repair shop that stored a few interesting Japanses Car
