Tadashi Mori


Tadashi Mori(1940-) Mie pref.

Lucky Bird - Incense Burner

The artist is living in a forest filled with the beauty of the nature.
The sound you can hear in his atelier is the songs of the birds ,winds and a small river.
If you can have a chance to talk with him, you can touch his warm heart for the weak
creatures and strong will to help them. His animals are not good-looking but vivid.
He dedicated his life to the beauty of the nature including both good and evil parts.
I can feel his profound despair and deep love to the world in his works.
