J'ai vu de la lumière alors je suis sorti.
Project info

"J'ai vu de la lumière alors je suis sorti" came from the proverb that explain the opposite idea, "I saw some light so I came in", but "je suis sorti" means the opposite, I saw some light so I went out". I decided to hang around my neighborhood by night. Attracted like a mosquito by the lights of the most vulgar suburban location of Tokyo, I strolled in Shimotakaido, Akazutsumi, Hamadayama, etc. on the area between Suginami and Setagaya. I tried just to paint the night as I felt it. This work is showing how urban elements, nature and lights are touching themselves, sensual caresse of the smooth night lights on the showa era charming buildings, feeling of the lonely walks in suburbs of Tokyo. All the pictures are taken in 2020.
