1- If you had to choose a Street Art piece that you created, as a transformation of the urban space, which one would you choose? How does this Street Art piece denote urban space metamorphosis?

A- Wash for changing the world

Of course, this mural contains my message, but I don’t know how people interpret it or how it affects the city. I was asked to draw a mural in this place, and I only drew the work I wanted to draw there.

2- Why did you make this Street Art piece in this urban space? Was it the town hall or the property owner who authorized or asked you to create it? Can we consider this work as illegal/vandalism or legal, what is your criteria?

A- I painted this piece for the owner of this building who order my mural.

3- What is the message you want to communicate through this Street Art piece? Is it related to the urban space where you did it?

A- The meaning of Japanese writing on the right in this piece is “Wash for changing the world”. He is washing Japan/日本 for clean it up. Because, In Japan society  centeredon people with wealth and power only and there is no hope for young people who can not have them.

Maybe other country has similar problem like this so we have to wash for changing the world.

4- How was this work integrated into the urban space? What was the interaction that the inhabitants of this city had with your project? Did they participate in its creation?

A- I just talked to only owner for this project

5- According to you, what is the criteria that determines your Street Art work modifies the urban space and why is your work considered aesthetically well done?

A- Many people never share the same values. That’s why I draw works that I decide are good. That’s all.

6- Why is urban art important to modify the urban space? What sort of projects are you planning to do in the future ?

A-I don’t know because I’m not so interested in directing urban spaces. Currently I have no plans other than overcoming this pandemic.
