Mr. Kambe is an emerging young painter from Gifu prefecture. He has participated in many exhibitions that were held in different parts of the world, such as New York, France, China and many more. In February this year, Mr Kambe presented an artist talk at Japan Creative Centre.

'While focusing on the small living things in the natural world, I will try to draw the surrounded big world.
As for the element which forms this world, it has the led to the element which forms our societies.
Whenever I focus the small individual of the nature world, I notice the affinity of our societies. Through the observation of the small things around us, I believe that we find the form of the big world'
- Tomoyuki Kambe

"Innocent World" Workshop for Children
To provide a hands-on experience for children to learn more about Japanese art, Mr Kambe will conduct a workshop to teach children to create Goldfish Mobile. The children will be first taught to use clay to shape the goldfish, and then use Japanese painting teachniques and materials to decorate the clay goldfish they have made. This workshop not only allows children in Singapore to experience traditional Japanese art, but also provides a good opportunity for parents to bond with their children through art.

The workshop is open for children aged 6 to 12. Each child needs to be accompanied by a parent. The children’s artworks will be displayed during the period of the exhibition at Japan Creative Centre. This workshop is only limited to 10 pairs (combination of 1 parent to 1 child). Therefore, if the number of applicants exceeds the capacity, a balloting process will be held.
