PLACE MAKING ART in SHIBUYA Work on Display!
Artwork created by the mural rookies and braille blocks integrated with artwork will be on display from March 25 - May 7! MAHARO mentored three up-and-coming artists, Erica Ward, Mameko Maeda, and Tanochi as they took on this massive challenge.
GREE Final Floor, 3F Art Complete!
TokyoDex worked with an international team of artists on a project for the GREE office's third floor space, creating an atmosphere that is a blend of east and west. Titifreak brought his unique São Paulo street styles while Alexandre Osmoze Brakha adds a more edgy European vibe. American illustrator Erica Ward provides a tormented look into the future where man and machine have merged, while Japanese artist MAHARO uses his signature imagery and original alphabet to create curious storefront-like signs with a distinct Asian flair. Neon accents from Harawata Chunko complete the cosmopolitan melange.
Office Art Produced for the Kobe Research Institute of a Global Pharmaceutical Company
For the renewal of the Kobe Research Institute of a global pharmaceutical company, TokyoDex engaged Mariya Suzuki to create artwork that seamlessly blends the vibrancy of Kobe City with the charming beauty of a German city. It's a true work of art that transports visitors to a captivating realm where two cultures come together in perfect harmony. To further enhance the experience, our team proposed the installation of film and acrylic panels to utilize the light boxes at the entrance. The artwork on the acrylic panels feature red roofs, castles, and towers that are characteristic of German cities while the work on the glass panels showcases the iconic cityscape of Kobe. It gradually transforms into a German landscape as you move to the right, taking visitors on a journey that's visually captivating.
