  Yasuhiko Tsutsumi
Born in Tokyo, 1965. I loved to watch the TV program, "Mitsubishi Diamond Soccer" every week. My dream was to become a famous soccer player, so I always played football with my long hair (that is an important point) when I was a kid. I started listening to jazz all the sudden when I got in high school. I loved S.Rollins and A.Ayler. I played the sax and was a member of some band. Now, thinking of my child who was just born in this spring, I listen to Hawaiian music at home.

  Megumu Tanigawa
Born and grew up in Osaka, 1973. Mother desired earnestly to start on a decent life, so I tried to get in graduate school, but gave up for my study. I changed my major from art to philosophy, but it was too hard!!?? I went to Art school, IMI after that, and enjoyed my life. However, I felt that pressure even more from my mother and wondered what I should. Then, this might be a fate!! I am working at a big ban as a director of the theater and trying my best here.

I have been working at the Intermedium Institute Art School as an assistant since I graduated from there. I also go to another college to learn Psychology. Of course, I am working, too..... I help Idea translate from Japanese to English. Recently I helped at a workshop for kids in a museum thank to Ms. Otsuki. I had a wonderful time!! Well, my theme for studying is outsider art. Hopefully, I can go to graduate school next year either in the U.S. or Japan.

  Chiharu Akaboshi

Live in Tokyo.Editor and Writer. I write articles as well as planning and editing books. The theme ,"Beauty of people's living" attracts me most privately and professionally. I focus on the interest of people's performance in all ages and countries through my idea, activities and works. The subject could be professors, specialists, artists and kids who join workshop as well as elderly people. I make my best effort to write articles easy if it is too complicated, understandable if very important, or more wonderful if I feel strange attractive. I develop my activity more and more. If you are interested in my works and offer me to work, contact me!
