About two years ago I became interested in art forgery after seeing several YouTube videos about
fraudsters such as Beltracchi, Mayatt and Hebborn. Last January (2016) I decided to try my hand
at it, but without the intent to decieve or profit. The result was a one-person show in September 2016
of some eighty paintings entitled (wiat for it): "A Brief Survey of Modern European Painting".
I tried my hand at, among others, van Gogh, Matisse, Giacometti, Modigliani, Mondrian and, of course,
Picasso, in primarily protoCubist and Cubist incarnations.
The show was held in the community gallery of Yagihashi Department Store in Kumagaya, Japan. No
sales are allowed, but I consider it a sucess as over 250 men, women and kids visited the show during
its one-week run.
I also included a brief survey of my own work.
