Tomori Nagamoto's project, Life Lessons is a collection of hand-drawn portraits of 311 Torontonians
with their favourite motivational or inspirational quote.
"Community innovators, such as local politicians, company presidents, festival organizers, critics,
writers, artists, musicians, curators, local business owners and students that contribute to Toronto's
vibrant diverse character and who I am continually inspired by are featured. It is more than a gallery
of portraits, but it represents a snapshot of present day Torontonians."
The project will be exhibited using a latest technology of full HD TV screens that will display a
life-sized image of each subject.
Known for his large-scale ball-point pen drawings, contemporary artist Tomori Nagamoto’s works
has been exhibited and published internationally.
