AGOPAN’s paintings feature rich colors, fine lines, and unique compositions while also skillfully incorporating the duality of modern and old-fashioned Kagoshima townscapes with elements of lost traditional culture. Regardless of one’s age, these paintings invoke a sense of nostalgia. Viewers often like to take pictures of the central characters in these pieces: anthropomorphic pandas whose facial expressions always feature a signature lip pout.
The lively situations which AGOPAN paints are transformed by the cute and humorous appearances of the pandas whose charming nature earns them a pass for any wrongdoing. Before we try to understand the meaning of things, we should be cautious of contemporary dangers which deceive us so easily through outward appearances.
