The World Of Mind’s Eye (English Edition)


Makoto Igarashi(著)


Recently, I decided to gather my works in one book. I wanted to have a connection with people who see my pictures. 

For me pictures are very personal thing. I think if I didn’t have my mother and teacher Nishikawa (calligrapher Tei Nishikawa) I wouldn’t draw. It started when I was young, and my mother became a student at teacher Nishikawa’s class. For my mother, it was ten years of hard study. I was also all dedicated to teacher Nishikawa’s classes, putting away my high school and university studies. I thought - “There are unbelievably fantastic people in this world”. My studies and image of people’s life - all was turned over from its root.
