Life100 years, Beyond old ageCreativity of expressors!!

"Super-old art" is a term coined by the author, and as the name suggests, it means "beyond old age," meaning art that actively engages in artistic expression even after or even after reaching old age. It's about the people who are there. This book contains all-color works and interviews with carefully selected 25 very old artists. Over the course of their long lives, they have experienced not only success but also various losses such as the death of people close to them, poverty, and disasters, but how do these super-aged artists live their lives and why do they express them? Did it come to that?

The author, who is Japan's only "outsider curator," searches among them for hints for living a long and enjoyable life in the age of 100 years.

The wonderful name ``Super Old Art'' and many wonderful works. The lion group that was hidden away is suddenly released! I'm in a state of confusion. Let's go to the other side of the world where you can enjoy every detail of the products made by super elderly people who never cut corners.
