"AOZORA ART" which is often feature in TJ Magazine has at last advanced to Paris, the capital of art. Artists of "Aozora Art," whose purpose is to change the current Japanese situation of the art from skeptical to optimistic, have appeared on a corner in Paris. Today's theme is "You Too Are A Masterpiece" .Being of Paris, you are pictured through the Mona Lisa peek-a-boo board. The picture is to be a gift to you, everybody become happy.
One "Aozora Art" member, Ms. Ai Bito said, "It was unexpected. Parisians were shy.
They didn't participate without being asked. They were similar to Japanese." All members of "Aozora Art" enjoyed interacting not only with French people but also with visitors from all over the world.
The purpose of "Aozora Art" in Paris was to communicate with foreign people without any language barrier through the power of art. It was achieved by the work of the artist, Ms. Rica Takashima, as well. Ms.Ai Bito emphasized that the next "Aozora Art" would be in New York!
