We recently asked Kurono some questions about his inspirations:

-

Q: Where do you find your creative inspiration?

A: "I’m always looking for ideas from various things.

I personally get the idea of my work from so many things, such as a vintage B-class movie poster, some cheap kitschy thing and everything I like. I think the essence of my art is to express tastes and favorite directly.."

-

Q: Why do you do what you do?

A: "As many artists do, I also fundamentally like drawing. I think it's wonderful that the things I imagine come into shape. And I would be very happy if many people enjoyed my work."

-

Q: What art/artist do you most identify with?

A: "There are many artists I respect.In particular, “Rockin’ Jelly Bean” and “Atsushi KANEKO” are among my favorite artists."

-

Q: What role does an artist have in society?

A: "It's my personal opinion. Art will enrich our life.
I think the world is full of art. On the contrary, how boring it would be if art were not in this world. Imagination is one of the privileges of human beings. I think I am very happy if it is able to come across art that changes my values. "

-

Q: What is your artistic outlook on life?

A: "We have different values and ways of thinking, and that also change from age to age, and so that's why it's interesting and precious. I think it's the way the world is. but if I can create universal works, it's a great thing, and of course I aim."

-

Q: What is your dream project?

A: "I want to continue to challenge myself to various things.Art books, story publishing, figure making, etc.
I would be very happy if many people could feel that it is interesting to see my work or if they could sympathize with my values."
