KAIKA TOKYO AWARD 2022 Grand Prize
Roppongi Yurika “ENTER”
Mr. Roppongi’s works have beautiful colors and are carefully written down to the details, so I never get tired of looking at them. I think that the artist has a story to tell and is drawing towards it, but I felt that this is an interesting work that allows you to enter the world of the painting from the perspective of each viewer.
I thought that Roppongi’s work could convey various stories depending on the viewer. In the presentation, I heard that the artist intended the three-headed dragon to represent the past, present, and future. I thought it was a rich work that could see various scenes.

KAIKA TOKYO AWARD 2022 Award
KAIKA TOKYO AWARD 2022 Nanasai Kondo “Mysterious Furniture”
At the stage of the application materials, I didn’t know how carefully Mr. Kondo’s work was made, but the real thing was very particular about details, and it was a quality that could be released to the world as a product. I felt that it was new in that it combines the appeal of both sides, both as an art object and as a unique piece of furniture that can actually be used.
