For the last three years we’ve has been conducting intimate studio visits with Japanese artists working in New York. The series offers an insider’s view into the personal spaces of the artist, documenting their choice of tools, toys and the many objects they choose to keep near.

We’re excited to announce that the web series is coming to life in the form of an exhibition at hpgrp gallery in Chelsea! It will be on view March 5th-8th with an opening Reception on Thursday March 5 from 7PM-9PM. We have a bunch of cool things planned so it should be a lot of fun!

The exhibition, co-curated by Masako Shiba and myself, brings together signature pieces by our favorite studio visit artists. Exclusive limited edition items were created for this special occasion, including one-of-a-kind iPhone cases and possibly the world’s first art dispensing gachapon. We’ll even be devoting a section as a tribute to the late Kenji Ekuan.
