"Flower Fairy Flower Man"

From November 12, 2021 (Friday) to March 14, 2022 (Monday) Umeda umekita Outer Garden SQUARE, Osaka

「フラワーマン」という花の妖精が、大阪という大地から、地球からにょきっと生えてきているという。両腕が、滑り台になっており、こどもも、大人も滑れます。手のひらはベンチになっていて、フラワーマンに抱えてもらえます。地球から顔を出した妖精です訪れたみなさんが、フラワーマンの手のひらにのって、地球に抱かれる感覚になり、癒されてもらえたらと思います。
同時に、開発が進む都市部で、自然を愛する気持ちをいまいちど、思い起こしてもらうきっかけになればと思っています。
私たちは、地球の、自然の一部なのだと。間借りさせてもらっているだけなのだと。
わがままで自然を、地球を破壊してはいけないのだと「フラワーマン」のからだには、30種類の草花を描きました。その草花の共通点は、すべて、野に咲く雑草です。踏まれても踏まれても生えてくる強い草花たち。道端で観察してもらえれば、見つかります。こどもたちに、どんな環境でも強く、たくましく、育って欲しい、そして、弱きものへの思いやり、自然への感謝とリスペクトも持ちつづけてもらいたいという願いも込めました。

It is said that a flower fairy called “Flower Man” is surely growing from the earth called “Osaka”. His arms are slides that both children and adults can slide on. The palm of your hand is a bench that can be held by Flowerman.
It is a fairy who came out of the earth.

I hope that everyone who visits will feel like being embraced by the earth in the palm of Flowerman and be healed.
At the same time, I hope that it will be an opportunity to remind us of our love for nature in urban areas where development is progressing.
We are part of the earth’s nature. I’m just borrowing it.
We must not destroy nature and the earth in our own way.

I drew 30 kinds of flowers on the body of “Flower Man”. All of the flowers have in common the weeds that bloom in the field. Strong flowers that grow even if they are stepped on. You can find it if you observe it on the roadside. We want children to be strong, strong, and grow up in any environment, and to continue to have compassion for the weak, gratitude and respect for nature.
