Wataru Uchida’s line drawings play on the surreal, blending fiction with reality through simple sketches. The artist employs humour and a lightheartedness to the works through the representations of humans and animals alike. 'Colorful' is a playful collection of works expressing an almost colouring book style.

On every trip Tara makes to Japan, there is always one destination that is a must for every visit, that is the T-site Bookstore in Daikanyama. This is where Tara fills her suitcase to the brim with Japanese magazines and books. 

On her last trip, when Japan’s Borders were still closed, there was an exhibition of Wataru Uchida’s in the bookshop that she fell in love with.
