2012年3月於日本 沖繩 大宜味村

March 2012 in Ogimi, Okinawa, Japan

這幅作品的標題是「三川一」,雖然作品十分「當代藝術」,但這畫其實是一個字謎,謎底就是標題的「三川一」,細看顏色的分隔就能意會了。

 

「三川一」君是我在喜友名牧場遇見的義工之一,喜友名牧場位於日本沖繩大宜味村,當時我在牧場wwoof(免費食宿、無人工、六日工作)。

三川一君本自日本本島,是個傳統日本男兒,性格認真、嚴謹、守時,趁學校假期來沖繩的牧場學習。

 

當時我想畫「藝術性高點」的畫,「三川一」這個名字就像一幅拼圖,就決定畫這個了。

不過牧場舊倉庫所剩的顏色油漆不多,要畫如此多彩的畫,倒是折騰了一翻……

 

最後要大大鳴謝喜友名爸、喜友名媽,放手讓我在他們的牆上塗鴉;也謝謝三川一君的漂亮名字!

 

The title of this wall painting is ‘Mikawa Ichi’. Although it looks like a ‘contemporary art’ but actually it’s a riddle and the answer is ‘Mikawa Ichi’(三川一). It’s easy to tell by observe the spacing of the colors.

 

I met ‘Mikawa Ichi’ in Kiyuna dairy farm when I was wwoofing (free accommodation, no salary with 6 days’ work) there in Ogimi, Okinawa, Japan.

Mikawa Ichi comes from mainland Japan and he is a traditional Japanese boy. He is serious, punctual and detail mind and came to experience Kiyuna dairy farm during school holiday.

 

I want to draw a painting with ‘a higher sense in art’ and the name of ‘Mikawa Ichi’(三川一) just like a picture puzzle so I decide to draw it.

It is a big and funny adventure to get enough colors for this colorful painting with so less color paints leave in the old warehouse in the diary farm.

 

I own a big thank you to Kiyuna mom and Kiyuna dad who let me graffiti their wall and thanks Mikawa share his beautiful name with me!

​「三川一」君難得的大笑容!

Mikawa with a rare big smile!

喜友名牧場的環境真係好靚……

Kiyuna dairy farm is so beautiful!
