Acute leukemia 11 years ago when he was told he had 2 months to live.
He was hospitalized for 10 months and underwent a bone marrow transplant and returned to work.
In March of this year, Katsumi Komagata was diagnosed with cancer of the esophagus, and in the process of continuing his work while undergoing treatment, he became keenly aware of the "beginning and end" of things.
In the midst of all this, Komagata made a new attempt for his exhibition in September this year.
The idea was to draw a picture of "the beginning and the end" first, and then to develop the story.
Of the 20 "Beginning and End" paintings in the exhibition, "ALONE" and "RAIN" were the first two books to be completed.
