A Note from Takao SAKATA
Once an artist said “Art is not a handicraft, it is the transmission of feeling the artist has experienced.” – Leo Tolstoy. I would like to continue fighting as an artist in Japan until the last day of my life, by creating, exhibiting, and presenting my work at AG Gallery in Brooklyn, NYC. The title for this year’s exhibition is “Love and Tears of Donald Trump”.
“There are ways of love and sorrow for each person, and so for Mr. Donald Trump. There is Mr. Trump’s way of loving and sorrow, and it is a chaos that can not be stepped in because there are areas that no one other than God can understand. There is a paradox that the present justice could be evil in the future generations. Today’s evil could become justice in the future generations. It seems to me that a person with such mysterious, undetermined charm is Mr. Trump. Rather than making Mr. Trump only an object of ridicule, I would like to examine the current society called America, and the person named Donald Trump, through the lens of artist. “
