social culture

NEW YORK, July 30 (Jiji Press) – A charity art exhibition by Sebastian Masuda, an artist working to spread Japan’s “kawaii” culture to the world, opened in New York on Friday, encouraging people to do so encouraged to think about peace.

Full of vibrant color, the exhibition features works that hint at the preciousness of ordinary everyday life, including beds where visitors can lie down to contemplate peace.

Masuda, 51, moved to New York from Japan in January. When he temporarily returned to Japan in February, he contracted enteritis. He said he realized how important it was to have a place to rest and relax since he didn’t have his own home in Japan at the time.

Thinking of the people of Ukraine who had lost their homes due to the Russian invasion, Masuda decided to hold his first art exhibition since moving to the United States to promote peace.

A portion of the profits he makes from the sale of his artworks goes to organizations supporting Ukraine. The exhibition ends on Sunday.
