About the design of Setouchi Triennale 2022 Main Visual

Nippon Design Center, Inc.
President Kenya HARA

In making this poster, I cast two spells on the elderly people of the island.
The first was sunglasses. I asked them to wear flashy and unusual black sunglasses.
I just wanted to take bright pictures. The second was photography.
The photographer, Yoshihiko Ueda, captured the splendor of old people alive.
The 2022 poster will send out a very bright message to the world from Japan, a nation of the elderly, and connect people with art.
