About myself / 経歴

Self-introduction / 自己紹介

Toru Inaishi / 稲石とおる

An artist of paper clay sculpture and sometimes Japanese painting.
I try to summon unique objects which are combined
different expressions like “cute but cool” or “cute but weird” and so on.
紙粘土彫刻アーティスト。たまに日本画も描きます。
かわいいけどカッコいい、かわいいけど奇妙、といった異なる表現を取り合わせてこの世にないものを召喚しようとしています。
