Manchester School of Art is the only school which holds Embroidery Major that I know of. The Students of the Embroidery Major is having a benefit Auction next week to raise money for their graduation exhibition. I remember that it happened in some NY art school few years ago, too that since the bad economy (?!) school canceled the graduation shows so the students had to come up with money for the event. I feel like if you pay that much tuition for 4 years to school you should automatically get the final show... but I guess sometimes it doesn't work that way.If you are in England and close to this area, please stop by and support the students! All the art work starts from £10. I have one embroidery work also. If you don't live in England you can also bit online! www.fivepointeightbyfourpointone.wordpress.com
Can you guess which one is mine???
>>>Over 120 local and international artists will pay visual tribute to some of the most famous pop culture icons in Japanese history and their creator, manga god Ishimori Shotaro.

I loved Tetris when I was a kid, and I always love this first screen image of the Russian building. This is what I remember as a kid when people talk about Russia. oh yes Russia I know people live in Tetris building! So I decided to have my Tetris image very Russian including the building and the color (Red, Yellow and blue) remembering what I thought of Russia as a child, Onion building, red pattern flowers, lots of Mushrooms from fairy tales, and the home of Tetris!This is a side story...after 20 years since I first saw the Russian building in Tetris, I finally made a trip to Russia 2010. I was amazed of those beautiful onion churches popping up everywhere in town and villages. And the land of Fairy Tales, I felt like I was in the fairy tale with wooden mushrooms, beautiful churches, lace window frames from the wooden houses and strange trees look like creatures. And here I'm really in the fairly tale! In the House of Baba Yaga! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baba_Yaga

Flower, Fire, sparkles in the dark night sky.
My favorite thing about Japanese summer. Festivals, shaved strawberry ice, dark chochin lamp, smell of festival food... ahh I can even hear people saying "Tamaya~!!!" to the night sky.
I'm wishing people in North East Japan will be able to have a summer fireworks and festivals one day soon after recovery, I was hoping that and while I was painting this.
This art work will be sold at "Dear Japan" Benefit on June 4th at ACNY gallery in New York.
I hope everybody can come out!
Oh! yes we did make a blog, here you can see amazing artists' works which will be in the benefit as well. check it out---->http://dearjapanny.wordpress.com/

It's getting slowly into a summer mode in NY. The green leaves are finally covering up the trees, hope everything is well with you~
It's been 2 weeks since the earthquake in Japan. I was working on these images a week after it happen and I was in a zombie state of mind. I thought about why am I even creating art when I really want to do is help people in Japan...? I felt so little and powerless... And I started to think about this project. All I wanted to do was to make something beautiful. Beautiful colors, pattern and a tiny bit of humor. After all I didn't want to make something depressing or sad. And when I start painting these patterns on the book pages and working with a repetition movement, I started to feel better, this is the healing power of Art??? Maybe it is.
I wish my art can heal somebody oneday, even a small smile or forget about hard time for a one second. That would be my goal!
The benefit is on April 6th, more info ---> http://www.artconnectsnewyork.org/
