One of the great things about living in Japan is the number of interesting, talented people I’ve got to know. I’ve met artists, sculptors [artists who make 3D art, statues and the like], photographers, writers, poets, singers, musicians, filmmakers, and actors – all of them very talented and very, very hard working.
One of the artists who I respect very much is Takashi Inaba, who also owns the oddly named Uni Pon Pon Kau Kau , a bar and art project space in Umeda. Inaba San’s inspiration to perspiration ratio is more like 50% to 50% (or more correctly, 100% to 110%!). He will be holding an exhibition of his work at galeria CERO, in Kita Horie, for 2 weeks starting from today. There will be an opening party this afternoon – all are welcome!

By the way, “substance” means to be something; to be real; to be solid – to have meaning!
