Art Exhibition in Tokyo
Last month I went to an art exhibition with a friend, for the students at the Kuwasawa Design School, in Shibuya.
The exhibition took place between the 22/2 – 24/2. It was interesting to see the design perspective of students here in Tokyo/Japan..and it was also free . For more information checkout the 2013 Art Exhibition here.
I loved the illustration in these designs above and below/
This idea with wolves below, was a bit weird..but the drawings on the wall looked great.
and this design below made me think of pacman.
I liked the characters in the books…so kawaii!
The illustration above and in the cards was pretty impressive and cool.
and of course some detailed anime illustration was dotted around. I liked the colours used in the flowers, in this piece below.
I also liked these below..so cute .
and then a piece of illustration featuring a polar bear eating ice cream?
I was surprised to see Western characters..so this below was one of my favourite parts of exhibit.
I tried to capture a good picture of this image below, but sadly I failed. The detail on he whale was superb.
TOKYO Olympic 2020 poster ideas
As well as other pieces of work, I also came across many ideas for 2020 Olympics bid.
I liked the idea of using characters in the style of Ukiyo-e..that also included The Great Wave.
But I really liked this idea below. The colour was bright and the pattern reminded me of the style used by the Gaudi work I saw in Barcelona.
A website had been mocked-up as well, which looked cute and friendly.
I love the packaging ideas I saw at the exhibition, as they all seemed really cute and were presented perfectly.
Interior Design & Architecture Design
I love Interior Design and Architectural Design, so it was nice to see some different ideas. The above item reminded me of the work by Yayoi Kusama.
Some of the Interior Design pieces also had a Western influence on them.
Product Design & Packaging Design (PT2)
I liked many of the product ideas, which mainly tried to use environmentally-friendly items..such as batteries and solar panels.
and they also looked pretty funky as well, such as the awesome phone above.
another item I noticed was this below, Tree…Bell..Love?
and a product called mybut??!?
The slide boxes we’re a great idea for packaging, and they were really cool.
As this box above opened to show a smile …so cute!!
