"Cave" Artist Talk & T-shirt

As the 2nd event accompanying the launching of the book "Cave",
we organized the talk show of the artist, Jun Tsunoda with Michiko Kitamura,
one of the most influential fashion stylists in Japan, and Tomoo Gokita, artist, on the 16th May at Aoyama Book Center, Tokyo.

Starting from the story how they met each other and commenting on
Jun Tsunoda's works with slideshow, in the talk, although they are working on
the different field of work, we could hear how those three share the same
approach towards their own work, and have been carrying out their own
original intention - it explained a lot why they keep standing in
the very front of the field.
We are so sure that this event became a fruitful opportunity for all the audience,
but above all, we all were overwhelmed by the energetic and sparkling power
Michiko Kitamura has!

Risa Sato @ Pictopia

An exhibition "Pictopia" held in Berlin, has just finished last week with
great success.
This exhibition, organized by Pictoplasma, explored the possibility of
character design and art featuring international artists, and our gallery artist,
Risa Sato were invited and gave a lecture at the conference during the exhibition period.
We've just received the report from them!
It seems an atmosphere of intense excitement filled the conference hall,
the audiences were earnestly listening to the talk.
Although this exhibition / lecture were unfolded on the expression of art through characters basically, the intention or thoughts of the artists behind their works
should be surely conveyed to the audiences beyond the border!
