Who is Bokunen, though? He is an Okinawa native, born on Izena island which is situated north-west of mainland Okinawa. Born in 1953, his interest in art started early. Due to a lack of readily available materials on the small island, he quickly used up the typical, square art paper he had at home. His aunt then gave him cement and fertilizer bags to draw on. He was the little boy who would not let any disadvantages stop him by drawing on anything, anywhere at any time. Growing up on farmland surrounded by hard-working farmers, he would sit quietly near the fields so his aunt could watch over him while she worked the land. While waiting for his aunt, he used the clay in the dirt around him to make horse, cattle and other animal figurines and line them up perfectly. Once, his aunt finished and went to get him, but when she saw the display of so many figurines that the number and perfect alignment made her say “it almost felt creepy”. Yet, this was a sign of Bokunen’s artistic future.
