Leo Ieiri to provide image song for Fukuoka art exhibition

Singer-songwriter Leo Ieiri will be providing the image song for the upcoming Fukuoka Asian Art Triennale 2014 exhibition!

The art exhibition features art from 21 countries around the world and features a different theme each year. This is the 5th Fukuoka Triennale, this time operating under the theme of “Panorama of the Next World: Breaking Out into the Future”.

Ieiri was chosen to provide the image song for the event since she is a Fukuoka native. The song (title TBA) will be produced by Yoshihiko Nisho, who’s produced the likes of other popular female singer-songwriters such as Ayaka and YUI in the past. The Fukuoka Triennale will feature the song, which is themed after the same central idea as the rest of the exhibition, in commercials for the event.

Comment from Leo Ieiri:

I’m Leo Ieiri, who will be singing the image song for The 5th Fukuoka Asian Art Triennale 2014. I go to art museums a lot on my off days. I feel that museums are places where you can experience the full gamut of human emotions in a single place. Since the Fukuoka art museum is where I’m from, I hope to express my love and deep feelings for Fukuoka. I’m going to work hard to make it a song that will make you all want to go to a museum, so please look forward to its release
