Artist Statement

By chance. I have received so many old stamps from all over the World. One of my friends' father was a professor of science at a university in Japan, He had many friends all over the World, and he travelled a lot. When he passed away, my friend was annoyed to have found all these old stamps, and gave them to me. We can see the evolution of World History in these stamps, quite fascinating. Sometimes, I found even the stamps of the countries which don't exist any more. Nostalgia, emotion and admiration for all these very small-sized human heritages motivated me to create artworks . Extract of the last 80 years of the World History, with a touch of SDGs notion.

N.B. It takes one month to mount the artwork on wood base and frame it with an acrylic cover.

size: 33 x 46 x 2cm.
