A sanctuary of Kinoko
After the Pink Tsunami disaster, everything disappeared and was covered with pink sand. All living creatures seemed to be extinct. One day Kinoko came from the sky. It was carrying a yellow bag full of the essence of life. Kinoko was alone. It took the bag and put the bottom head into the ground. It sat down in a casual pose for a while. Small balls started to bubble on the surface of the yellow bag and covered everything rapidly. All of a sudden the balls all burst together and were absorbed into the pink desert. Then new life began like bamboo shoots after rain. This seemed to be new life which did not exist in the previous world. Everything was completely covered with new life. It was the beginning of a new era for better or worse.
I represent a new mythology called Pink Tsunami, which describes how the world came to total destruction. Typically, symbols have the form of words, sounds, and ideas. This story, shown only with visual images, represents a number of different meanings and ideas. In this way the story brings personal images and stories to the reader based on their experience and environment, giving them more room to read in a different way.
Mythology was traditionally transferred by the oral tradition on a small scale. During this process, the story was modified, arranged, simplified and details were added. I have tried to reproduce the same process of mythology all on my own by drawing images in different styles and materials over and over again.
