Artist's Description

This is the art of Yukinko Akira, a rhythmic painter otherwise known as multi-tasker extraordinaire.

With a paint splattered CD player slung over his back, he begins his act by playing some music and performing some DJing – making funny noises as he manipulates the CD with his hands while it is playing.

Then he starts to dance. And paint!

In the middle of it all, he might pause to act a bit, stretching his hands and making gestures in the air. Then he dances again… completes his art, signs off and presents it to some pretty young girl in the audience. By now, he would be drenched in sweat.

Akira gave six half-hour performances in Singapore over the May 22-24 weekend, as part of the Singapore Arts Festival.

I almost missed his show. On Friday night, I was too tired to attend even though I was just 15 minutes’ walk away. On Saturday night, I had dinner and tea with some friends.

On Sunday, I had a late afternoon nap and woke up late feeling groggy. Should I gp? I dragged myself to. And was glad I did!
