We were born on the same day, but we were living different lifestyles, but in the end, we ended up with the same identity.
Fraternal twins born in Nagano Prefecture in 1995, Kiyoshi Funayama (Isagi) and Kai Funayama (Arata).For those of us who have been climbing mountains since childhood and interacting with the four seasons and creatures of the mountains, “playing in the mountains” was a daily routine.The colors of red, blue, yellow, and other colors of the soil and leaves, the autumn nightscape that can be seen when the autumn leaves fall, and the cloud shapes that change every day are fresh and inspiring.
Over time, the two have changed how they deal with nature.One is a climber who plays with mountains in nature, and the other is an artist who expresses what she feels from nature.
Why did you go in a different direction, even though the essence of playing with nature has not changed?Also, is it in a different direction or in the same direction?Please experience the space that two people create.
