‘We Are Friends’ was specially created for Kero's World curation ‘Friendly Integration’.

The image is an Art Nouveau artist, Alphonse Mucha's ‘Reverie (1897)’ regenerated in the style of anime with AI (Midjourney). The image is edited with Adobe Photoshop, and ASCII art is incorporated with TouchDesigner (node base software for visual coding).

In the beginning of my study in painting (when I was teen to twenties), I was fascinated by Mucha's beautiful colors and gorgeous style. Mucha is a very familiar artist whose works are often exhibited in Japan. The drawing style with outlines evokes Japanese anime, and I think Mucha in the style of anime is very compatible.

There are various techniques in this work. All of them are important to create one work, and none of them should be missing. From that point of view, all the techniques are friends. ‘友だち’ in ASCII art means friends in English.
