on the street...Harajuku



He's bonsai artist, Great Hama-san
from TRADMAN'S.

キャットストリートのはずれをてくてく。
全身タトゥーのかっこいい人が目の端をかすめる。
踵を返す。
思わず声をかける。
撮らせてもらう。

There was a exhibition of his Bonsai
at deus ex machina,
I happened to take a walk and find it.

「20歳かな?最初は植木屋に就職して。
植木屋さんは虫とかが付くから長袖を着るのが
昔から慣習であるんですよね。
タトゥー隠れるからちょうどいいや、ってそんなノリで。」

'Why I start to become bonsai artist?
first,  I decide to become gardener
because they need to wear long sleeve
shirts for avoiding bugs and crickets.
I have many tatoo in my body, you know,
so gardener is so good to keeping it from sight.

「やってみたらドンドン盆栽はまって、
9年修行させてもらって、で独立して。
今、TRADMAN'Sてユニット組んで
創作活動して。今ちょうど展示会してるんです。」

きれいで、まっすぐ澄んだ瞳、
穏やかな声でそう話す。
明鏡止水、という言葉を思い出す。


for me, working as gardener and 
making bonsai is so interesting,
I'm totally absorbed in it.
Yes, I really like my work.' 
He told.

実際彼の盆栽は
見ると引き込まれる美しさと、丹精、そして丁寧がある。

1ミリたりとも妥協しない作りこみ具合
植物へ注ぎ込まれた沢山の愛情は
作品に「強さ」になって
見る人の心を引き付ける。



クリエイターと、
その人が作り出すクリエイションは
やっぱりどこかしら共通点があるのだな、と改めて。
