WISH LESS gallery is delighted to announce Japanese painter Mika Takeuchi’s solo exhibition ‘Sentimental Park’
The subject matter of the paintings are animal-shaped playground equipment  called ‘Melody Pets’, a product of the Showa era in Japan. They radiate a sense of loneliness and give a sweet and sentimental aftertaste, a flashback to childhood memories.
In recent years, the diversification of entertainment and the declining birth rate have led to the closure of old amusement parks across the country and melody pets have become a rarity.
The animals’ well-worn fur and charming expressions show not only cuteness, but also the sadness and madness of decadence, even giving the illusion that they are alive.
The Melody Pet miraculously survives in a modern society that continues to develop in favour of convenience and economy.
Created in the Showa era, they still walk slowly in the corner of an amusement park and ask questions about ‘consumer society’ and ‘affluence’.


Mika Takeuchi is a Japanese painter based in Kobe. Graduated from Osaka University of Arts Junior College of Design.
After working as a graphic designer at an advertising agency, she began her creative activities in 2010.
Her expression is diverse, including paintings, installations and performances based on the motif of Melody Pets.
