Naho Ito painting is her language. The artist does not feel the need to draw grand stories. Humans have been living a moment after moment under whatever circumstances. Therefore, she would like to express in her word-paintings the moments that we live through one after another. So, every moment is grand in a way. Ito looks for true words and try to endow them with a delicate sense of direction towards hope, so that people will be able to have a dialogue with each other. And she wants to show the light hidden behind those words.
