Yumehito Ueda

Gekka kagura (Moonlit Kagura Dance)


The theme for this exhibition is ‘Japan’, and I considered various motifs but of them all, the one that made the strongest impression was that of Japanese festivals. It is not just Japan, festivals everywhere have a long history and they generally preserve an ancient style.
Japan has numerous festivals unique to the places where they are held, but in this picture I have produced something of a fantasy. It may belong to a different time and place, but when I drew it, I imagined scenery and characters that would create an impression of Japan.
