I’ve known Mr Muju for almost 20 years and Miss Muju for maybe 1/2 that. They are and continue to be not only some of my best friends but a constant source of inspiration.
Mr Muju, one of the most talented artists I know, is responsible for me first seriously picking up a camera and must be credited with introducing me to Buddhism long before he was the catalyst that made me go to India thereby changing the course of my life forever.
I feel genuinely lucky to be his friend.
Miss Muju is also an incredibly talented artist whose plush and resin work has delighted and amazed fans & fellow artists from around the world. She drives a VW Camper and is quite simply lovely.
Together they form Mujuworld…..Paintings, drawings, plush and bio-resin designer toys from a unique shared creative vision.
They are easily the nicest, most relaxed people I know.
I did a photograph of them for my “Talented Friends” series several years (2009 to be exact, when they visited me in Tokyo) ago but I’ve always wanted to make a short documentary about them and their amazing work. Unfortunately, they are legendarily camera shy and put off doing an interview for years. By a process of wearing them down, moaning and emotional blackmail I finally managed to get them to sit down and talk on camera late last year.
The result, along with a lot of accumulated archive footage both mine and theirs and many examples of their work is the 20ish minute documentary “Tuning Into Radio Muju”.
So sit down with a cup of tea and take a trip with us to Muju Mountain!
