I love doing sumi here. In the states, most people have no idea what suminagashi is, and if they do it’s usually along the lines of “Oh sure, my kid did that one day in kindergarten.” While I love that suminagashi is such an easy and accessible art form, it’s a little like telling a painter that your kid enjoys finger painting… 🙄 Here, everyone actually knows what it is! And they’re at least polite enough to comment on the difficulty involved 😂
We just got back from an emotional 3 day trip to Hiroshima. Here are a few photographs of the children’s memorial, where people from all over the world send chains of folded peace cranes. For more pictures of our trip, follow me on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/babayagahouse/
Title image for our upcoming show, sort of like a sneak peak…
