Appreciate pictures of gentle plants painted by a brush in a mouth
This art museum provides a place to view the paintings of Tomihiro Hoshino. He was born in Gunma in 1946. He worked as a teacher until he lost the use of his arms and legs in an unexpected accident. However, he learned to paint watercolor pictures of plants, not with his hands but by holding the brush in his mouth. He also included pleasant and sometimes powerful poems along with the paintings. You can feel the courage and joy to live in his work.
