About the Artist
Satoru Kuboyama is an Izu-based artist born in 1956 in Tokyo.
He moved to Minami-Izu about 30 years ago, and rebuilt an old house in a middle of a mountain where he started his career as an artist. Eventually, he created an art gallery next to the house and named it “The Magic Land.”
His paintings and drawings are permanently exhibited at the gallery. Satoru has held many solo exhibitions to share his magical and unique world of wonder.
Recently, he has been working hard on imaginary bugs – colorful and wonder-full bugs which were born from his imagination and inspiration found in country living in Minami-Izu. By now, he has created more than 700 such bugs!
