He’ll soon be captivating space as well.
Earlier this year, Spacex founder Elon Musk revealed that Maezawa will be the first private passenger to take a trip around the moon.
For his part, Maezawa plans to take artists along for the ride in an effort to capture the moment from various creative perspectives.
A website for the project—entitled #dearmoon—went live shortly after the announcement, with a stunning description:
“A painter, musician, film director, fashion designer…
Some of Earth’s greatest talents will board a spacecraft
and be inspired in a way they have never been before.”
He’s often discussed the preparations and whom to take. He hopes to make the journey as soon as 2023.
