・MINAMI was brought up in the southern part of Ishikawa prefecture where Kutani-yaki manufacturers are located.
・He used to work as a designer at the factory of the western style tableware.
・Once working at the Kutani Ware visitor center, he engaged himself in creating works.
・The feature of the work is precise brush strokes to express realistic plants and animals.
・Those pictures seem to have actual moving to make us feel fun.
