Comment
ブラジル・サンパウロビエンナーレの地元サンパウロ市では,多くの日系人がその才能を花開かせ活躍していられて感動的である。豊田氏も、長老的存在でありながら現在も盛んに制作活動を続けていられる作家で、その彫刻作品は、現地のみでなく祖国日本に於いても天童市美術館や各地で見る事が出来る。

Many Brazilians of Japanese origin exhibit their printmaking talents at the Sao Paulo Biennial. Mr. Toyota is a veteran printmaker who continues his creative work with sculptural works that are exhibited in Brazil as well as throughout Japan; for example at Tendou-shi art museum.
