If you happen to be in Fukui this month, you may have heard about the Fukui Yume Art festival. It’s basically a huge city-wide celebration of art featuring local artists and utilizing empty spaces around the city to promote art. It’s an awesome idea, and I was really happy to be invited to participate this year. You can see the schedule below. ↓Yume Art Schedule; more info here
I’m showing yokai again, though these are not yokai from Night Parade — these are yokai from my A-Yokai-A-Day project on this blog. They are all acryllic and gouache paintings on Japanese shikishi. I was lucky to get a great spot in the middle of the business district in front of the train station and next to McDonald’s, and the owners of the space have said that it has been packed every day! Here you can see some of the paintings being shown:
If you’re in Fukui, my yokai will be showing for a few more days, so definitely go see them if you have the chance! The originals look much nicer in person than on a website. And make sure you go see some of the other great artists. The curators of the program selected a huge range of different styles of art, so there is sure to be something there for everyone to enjoy!
