Its first edition was widely loved and garnered a warm response from respected personalities of the Indian cinema. Celebrities like Rajit Kapoor, Adil Husain, Ajayant Vincent, Neeraj Kabi, and Gautam Vaze praised the platform for its all-inclusive nature. The platform offered great space to the budding as well as professional filmmakers, cinematographers, and storytellers where they could portray their ideas and stories freely.

Till the first week of April, the organization had already received more than 100 regional and international participants. The winners for the same will be announced and honoured during the main festival.

It’s time for cinema buffs to gear up as the Malhaar film festival is all set to showcase movies and stories that have the potential of beginning a momentum.

Art Exhibition of Hikari Sato’s artwork in Japan

WASHINGTON, 2022-Apr-12 — /REAL TIME PRESS RELEASE/ — A few months ago, an art exhibition that features environmental protection has been launched in Shinjuku Morita Art Museum in Japan. The works on display come from dozens of artists from all over the world, among them is Japanese wandering artist Hikari Sato. She is an environmentalist, and also a painter. She used to travel around the world studying and promoting the concepts of environmental protection, in an attempt to raise people’s awareness of protecting the earth and the natural environment.

Hikari Sato’s journey of study overseas

WASHINGTON, 2022-Apr-12 — /REAL TIME PRESS RELEASE/ — Born in Japan in 1993, Hikari Sato showed her talent for drawing when she was in elementary school. While other classmates used paintings to express their joys, sorrows, and childhood, she, on the other hand, liked to depict mountains, fields, streams, and animals. The snow on Mount Fuji and the deer in Nara are all objects she liked to paint.

Having grown up, Hikari Sato hoped to improve her knowledge and perspective so that she can create better arts, and then she began to travel to many countries to find inspiration for her paintings and became a wandering artist. Sometimes She painted graffiti works in the corner of the bustling streets, and other times went to dilapidated villages, painting her inspiration on the bricks and tiles that seem to have been forgotten. Obviously, she prefers to leave her works in different places than in one closed space.

By far, Hikari Sato has left her graffiti works on walls in Tokyo, Osaka, New York, Tel Aviv, Hong Kong, Toronto, Candelaria, etc. Apart from being an artist herself, she is also an avid groupie. Of course, what she likes is not pop idols, but well-known artists and their works.

“I take time out every year to appreciate other people’s street works, especially in cities that value graffiti culture, where there will be many excellent paintings, and these paintings will give me important inspiration and hints. I think as a person who loves to paint, (she wouldn’t call herself a painter or an artist), learning and thinking are important.”

In Tokyo, Hikari Sato learned how to draw a vivid anime character, and she once stood for a long time under a painting of Astro Boy on the wall just to study the structure of the character. In Europe and America, she saw more works, like caricature paintings and praise paintings, that emphasize content creation.

“Painting is a way of expressing ideas. In many cases, people can understand the author’s idea without explaining.” So she pays great attention to the content expressed in her works. She is not just a painter, she is also an environmentalist. This is because much of the beautiful scenery she could see when she was a child disappeared later. “The colors of my work are changing, and many of the landscapes I could see when I was a kid don’t exist anymore.”

She matured through years of study and street works and also gained a little fame, but she doesn’t care about it. She believes that making meaningful art is the thing that matters the most, and for this reason, she hopes to advocate environmental protection through paintings, reminding people to behave themselves and stop damaging the environment.

Hikari Sato Participated in Nuclear Wastewater Protest

WASHINGTON, 2022-Apr-12 — /REAL TIME PRESS RELEASE/ — On February 23, 2021, many Japanese people flocked to the streets of downtown Fukushima to express their opposition to the government’s decision to discharge nuclear wastewater into the sea, and even representatives of some civic groups came to protest. Some Japanese experts believe that it is a hasty decision to rashly decide to discharge nuclear wastewater into the Pacific Ocean without the on-the-spot investigation by international research institutions first. Our guest, Hikari Sato, also participated in the protest and was involved in the design of the protest posters.

For those who know Hikari Sato, this is not surprising, because environmental protection has long been a philosophy of Hikari Sato’s life. As a painter, she is used to reminding people to protect the environment through her paintings.

We won’t have a society if we destroy the environment. As Margaret Mead said, if the environment is seriously destroyed, the consequences of which for human beings are unbearable. Hikari Sato has always been promoting the concept of environmental protection with people she can reach.

“When I know that the government decides to discharge nuclear wastewater into the sea, I realize that this will put people in the future into a bad situation, despite that they have claimed repeatedly that these waters are harmless. In the past 100 years of human history, we have dumped enough harmful substances in corners of nature at will, and Mother Earth can no longer take more damage.”

After that, she answered some of our questions.

Q: When did you start advocating for environmental protection?
A: When I was 20 years old, at that time I’d already been to many countries to study and create. I found that, in every country, there are people who don’t care about the environment.

Q: What have you done about it?
A: You know, I like to draw. So sometimes I would remind people of the importance of environmental protection through my paintings. There are also times when I’d participate in publicity activities, like walking with my friends on the street and explaining to people some of the knowledge about environmental protection

Q: Some people say that you being an environmental advocate is just a gesture to gain fame. What do you think about this?
A: I’m curious who said that. If it was for fame, I would have a better way of doing it. Like showing my works in exhibitions from all over the world, or getting on some TV shows, but I haven’t done any of that.
