Rei Kamoi was a Japanese contemporary artist known for depicting life moments that are rarely deemed as "art-worthy", including portraits of individuals who were under the influence of alcohol. 35 years after his passing, the special exhibition "Resting Time" at Fukuoka's Kurume City Art Museum looks at around 100 of his works, including the award winning "Still Time".
Adult admission to the special exhibition is priced at 1000 yen. Do note that the museum closes on Mondays if you're planning to visit.
The Kurume City Art Museum is located approximately 15 minutes on foot from the Nishitetsu Kurume Station, served by the Tenjin Omuta Line.
