「Jean-Michel Basquiat: Now’s the Time」 started at Art Gallery of Ontario(AGO)
from February 7th.

I am overwhelmed by the auther’s passion.
Jean-Michel Basquiat’s works have influenced me greatly.

When I was a student, I didn’t like to study history because I thougth that story of the past were not near my present life.

I found that my ignoranceit and it is important that learning about the historical context in front of his works.
I felt that his works ask somothing matter through mosaic city of Totonto.

It will be held untill May 10th.
I want you to check out it and feel his massage.

「Jean-Michel Basquiat: Now’s the Time」2月7日からアートギャラリーオンタリオ(AGO)で始まった。
AGOへ足を運ぶ度に作品から溢れ出す作者の熱に圧倒される。
Jean-Michel Basquiat、彼の作品もまた私に大きく影響を与えた。

学生だったとき、私は歴史の勉強が好きではなかった。
遠い昔の話は、今の自分たちの生活とかけ離れていて、
関係ないことのように思えたからだ。

今回、彼の作品を前にして、その歴史的背景を学ぶことの大切さと同時に
自分の無知さに気づかされた。
トロントのモザイクシティという土地柄を通してみる
彼の作品は様々なことを訴えかけているように感じた。

5月上旬まで開催される。
ぜひ足を運んで彼のメッセージを感じてほしい。
