Where are you in the world, and what’s the current Coronavirus situation like?
I’m in Tokyo, Japan. The city can’t legally be put on lockdown, but we’ve been asked to use self-restraint and refrain from going outside unless we urgently need to. It seems like things are getting better, little by little, but I’ve been stuck in the studio now for two months, cooking by myself.
And how’s work looking the moment – is the pandemic having a big impact?
It’s mixed – shows, events and overseas projects have almost all disappeared, but new projects are starting to come in again, and I’m painting in the studio as usual.
