HAYASHI Shunsaku


Born in Osaka, in 1992. A second year student at a junior high school in Osaka City. His personal exhibition held in Osaka and Tokyo in 2006 was well received. He was the winner of the Semi-Grand Prix at the EPSON Color Imaging Contest 2005. His work is expected to be published as a book in spring 2007.

Award Reason

Mr. HAYASHI has won several minor prizes over the last few years, but this year his work has been finally awarded the Encouragement Prize. Although still a junior high school student, his huge and detailed wall painting betrays no hesitation in execution and a degree of perfection in completion. His interpretation of Gaudí's unfinished work, Sagrada Familia, is also excellent. He says that he was inspired by a television program, but I recommend that he actually travel to Barcelona. Twenty years ago, I heard that it would be completed in one hundred years, but someone who visited the site recently also said the same thing. Perhaps nobody is really counting down; it is a building of mystery.
