"It’s my desire to find a liberation from the confinement of the traditional Japanese art world, with its narrow, rigid ideas, and create things that belong to the whole world. If you wish to create something new, first go back to the roots from which the creative dynamic flows and then choose your own path."
Hiroshi TeshigaharaJanuary 28, 1927 – April 14, 2001
