In Japan, there is an artist who overcame serious illness and hardship in childhood, and now creates artwork unbeknownst to most people. This program introduces artists from across Japan for whom expression is not a choice, but a compulsion. Not influenced by existing art or trends, nor by education, these artists and their works are gaining worldwide recognition. Devoted to creation, not for anyone else or even for themselves, they have a powerful presence. This episode features Takemura Aika (29) who lives in Okinawa Prefecture. The program delves into her creative process and attempts to capture her unique form of expression.
