Art Photo Tokyo Gallery Scene

Today was some walking around Shibuya, first checking out the recently open Gallery Scene where some OBEY prints are currently being exhibited along with other artists' works.


We ended up especially liking JONJON GREEN's stuff. His works currently on display have a transparent acrylic board placed over a print, giving some interesting 3D effects. His music-themed works with lots of speakers are a lot of fun.

This was also accompanied by some graffiti watching. This wall nearby the record shop district has great works by KAMI and SASU. The last picture below is of Flying Fortress seen on Dōgenzaka.

And last but not least, check out this huge advertisement for a book, being painted on a wall outside Parco! While at a first look it may seem to be posters, it's completely hand-painted. I've heard before that theaters (play and cinema) in Japan used to always have their "posters" painted, and I think some still follow the tradition to this day.

Those guys doing the wall paintings at Parcos are the Kabutos Factory.
They had a presentation at the Pecha-Kucha Night last month. They have been doing it for more than 10 years!
