Went over to beacon last week and had dinner. Great food and staffing. Nice people. Many people are calling us to make a reservation, so the promotion we are doing must be working. It’s a different kind of event and it is part of our dream to bring artists and business people together.
How often do you have a chance to meet and talk with an artist? There will be many chances like this at Art Night @ beacon. Here’s the current list of who will be there:
Joji Shimamoto–young photographer, people tell us he reminds them of Daido Moriyama.
Masumi Yoshida-just a 3rd year student at Joshibi-women’s art university, but has pioneered the use of new techniques.
Atsushi Takahashi–he’s a painter who reminds me of Winner Jumalon from the Philippines combined with Jackson Pollock–although he hates–like all artists d0-to compared with anyone else. He is truly unique.
Gakushi Yamamoto–our first young artist, a first-class sculptor and son of a buddhist priest who puts everything he knows into his work.
Mario Tauchi–grew up in four different countries. His work reminds people of the pop artists of the 1960′s. I love his paintings on traditional Japanese scrolls as well as his work on skateboards.
This weekend, we open a new show and a lot of the work from Art Night @ beacon will be in the gallery.
