At the time of starting the business in 2007, Mr. Hashiguchi, the representative director, was mainly engaged in custom-made art production. For example, I worked hard to create a wide variety of works such as shutter art in Asakusa, Tokyo and live painting at the beach. 


Every day I try and error the part pointed out by the customer at the office ...

It is Hashiguchi who does not compromise.

In those busy days, in 2010, a request like fate came in. The realistic depiction drawn by Hashiguchi caught the eye of a person involved in a long-term care facility in Aichi Prefecture, and said, "I want you to draw the outer wall of a pay nursing home ."

One request received in this way. Hashiguchi worked on mural painting with all his heart.

It's in the middle of that. Hashiguchi is asked by users of long-term care facilities to say, "I miss my hometown" and "I want you to draw my memories ."

This led me to think about the problems faced by long-term care facilities and what users want . 

What I was interested in was Hashiguchi to check Tokoton!

To find out what kind of paintings are preferred by the elderly, start by "knowing the scene"!

I read a lot of medical books, interviewed the site, and repeated the test.  ・ ・ ・ 

Sometimes the paintings on the walls were too small ...

After a lot of mistakes, trial and error, Hashiguchi continued to face the challenges with the model and the actual size.
