TM is a painter as you know but established a creative art label, THE-B-MART to try what he want to do experimentally. And one of his dreams is hanging his art on wall at all the family home all over the world. He released canvas prints at a reasonable price to let everyone feel free to enjoy arts more, and also he released an advertising T-shirt called Ad-T to let everyone advertise canvas prints by themselves. And he got a great response and caused a sensation with selling out all the 52 arts’ Ad-Ts at his booth at a music festival.

TM was struggling day after day. How to interact and spend time with his fans because a painter like him always stays in home? He came up with the portrait workshop.

Every portrait workshops got a ton of traffic and he succeed to interact and have fun with a lot of fans. And his next plan is to meet the world he’ve never met.
