This is the 1st work for a series ''before the 7th''
Based on an Iranian execution mixed with the western culture (Banana / Formaldehyde cow / that Funny man / myself in alphabet and Kanji / Fountain).
Whatever we see, hear, think of the problems around the world, in the end we always end up thinking about tonight's dinner.
Someone may say ''Hey Assad's really gone and done it now... well....but you know we are in London...anyway I'm hungry darling, what shall we eat tonight?''...
This series is for him to express the differences between the Western world and the places where people are suffering starving and fighting, He also would like to figure out a meaning and a value of the modern art.
One thing He wants to assure is that He sells this original painting to only the one who can promise to take care well.
Please kindly contact first if you are interested as the price does not matter for him as long as the right person picks up.
He is working on another 5 paintings in this series.

Monica Forrer In this work and through your words, I see the triviality of everyday life as a potential danger of forgetting what really matters, but also a playful and reassuring side, the painting reminding me also somehow of a merry-go-round. Life is scary, dangerous and serious but we have essential basic "animal" needs that "save" us from drowning in seriousness or a sense of tragedy, our daily basic hunger or the unquestioned happiness when the sun shines, etc... Am I far away from your intentions? Cong

Dato Mio This is a very interesting work pointing to art history, our modern reality, and the end of food as something cultural. This is a historical painting, which portrays the current lack of connectivity between people in industrialized societies. I also sense a loss of subjectivity in the work. There is also something allusive and cinematic about the painting.

Roberto Prusso An outstanding example of the artists ability to bring to the viewing public differing aspects of the human condition, in a manner that is eye catching, and thought provoking.

Ana Costa it is a very interesting painting. the composition is nice, and the colors are very well chosen.
yeliz yorulmaz Besides the painting's conceptual and graphical strengths, it sounds as a great project well-thought out from beginning to end.

Meggie Zhang Hi Naoki, I love your work, it's very thoughts provoking. I admire your imaginations and thoughtfulness.

Zuzu Sahillioglu I like your artistic technique as well as your humanist ideology.,, This strong work absolutely so thought-provoking!..
susannah Martin This a great conceptual work Naoki, and I agree with you completely and am always amazed at how wee humans can ignore the big picture, the huge problems in society as long as we continue to have something new to consume and distract ourselves with. That angers me intensely also. Great work Naoki!

Rory Running I think everyone said what I am thinking about this. An Issue that is right in our faces every day and this painting sums so much of that up. I can see how the world is running through you in this painting and you were able to express that on canvas.
