"Mathias" - Nihonga 日本画 � traditional Japanese Painting, minerals on Japanese paper
After a while Stefan introduced me to his friend Mathias, living just next roof. A little bit envious about his newly constructed neighbour Roppongi Hills � so shiny and so much glass and art � he tried hard to keep salaryman working below him cool. As a side effect he also heated up his surrounding because of the waste heat he was producing. Other high skyscrapers blocking the fresh breeze from Tokyo Bay made him even work harder to get his job done. I didn�t know what to say, so I portrayed him.
