Our friend Roamcouch will be opening his first solo show at UTBNYC located in Brooklyn, New York. The Japanese stencil master will be presenting a new body of work for this show entitled “A Beautiful Life”.

“A Beautiful Life” is that I expressed my feeling of gratitude to people who are interested in my works of art. I don’t want to create pieces of art relating to complicated themes. Due to my illness, I lost almost everything and was once disappointed with my life. Fortunately, art gave me an opportunity to restart my life. In other words, I have been kept alive from my art lovers. Hence, I want to please and gratify them by creating attractive artworks. That’s why I painted. In addition, I am proud of being Japanese and I believe that there is something special which only Japanese artists are able to create. Although street art is originally a part of foreign cultures, I think that I can see it from a distinct perspective. As I have been thinking the above belief as a really significant factor of creating pieces of art, I would like to know if my works of art based on the belief are appreciated on an international level. That’s the reason why I chose New York as the venue for the show. Finally, I would like to thank all the people who have been supporting my show especially staffers working at UTBNYC and my art lovers. –Roamcouch

“A Beautiful Life” will be opening on Saturday, June 27th at UTBNYC – 60 Broadway, Brooklyn, NY 11249. If you are around New York, please make sure not to miss it.
