Nagi Noda 1973-2008


Nagi Noda, 1973 - 2008.

My first met Nagi's works was in Collette 2006.

That was almost our last day in Paris.
We were visiting Louvre museum in the morning. Louvre is too huge and it's impossible to see every single artworks in one day. And I know if I walked in usual speed, I'll gonna missed out Nagi's exhibition in Collette. So I ran, by skipping a lot paintings and finished my Louvre's trip in half day.

To me, Nagi's works are even more inspiring than staring at Monalisa for hours. ( Yes, i have to admit I don't know how to appreciate oil paintings,
I am low class.)

I was in love with Nagi's works since then. She is so daring, brilliant, genius, unique... 'creative' is not enough to describe her, please suggest me a few new words.

This morning when I was surfing some design portals as usual, i was so shocked by the headline ' In Memory of Nagi Noda'. No way! Is this a joke? Is this some teaser or viral for Nagi's latest exhibition? I still can't accepted it and so I Googled, and Wikied... And It is real, Nagi passed away on 7 Sept 2008 in the age of 35.

This is a great sadness, i was depressed for a while,
and smoke a few cigarettes continuously, then called friends about the news... like losing someone really important in my life, I dunno why.

We will miss you Nagi. See you when I am 35.
