Studio Kura is a gem in itoshima. I admire the work they have been doing. All the people I have met, from Studio Kura’s staff (Saori-san, Hiro-san, Katsura-san), to the artists currently staying (Kalina, Kostas&Stephanie, Vanessa, Colleen, Daniel, Susan, Jia Sheng, Chris, Ing), are super friendly and welcoming. We talked, shared stories, and laughed. It has been a wonderful and inspiring experience.

I was impressed by HIROFUMI who runs an art program in which young artists from all over the world participate in the countryside of Itoshima. I wish that the KURA ART Residency will develop and I would like to visit my friends again soon

I had such a great time visiting Hirofumi's artist in residence! It is located in such a beautiful, quiet town (great break from the city) and art is really alive there! Besides seeing the currently staying artists and their work I got to see the kid's drawing class and partake myself. Hirofumi is doing such an amazimg thing for artists and for the local community, I'm extremely happy I got to meet him and everyone else!
