The Peanuts Global Artist Collective is a global project led by Peanuts Worldwide LLC. For their first step, a mini poster exhibition began taking place at the Snoopy Museum in Roppongi on April 21, with works produced by seven artists including Tomokazu Matsuyama.
Tomokazu Matsuyama is a Japanese artist based in New York. He graduated from the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn in 2004 and has gone on to produce works for galleries and art museums around the world.
Additionally, videos are currently being shown on the large screens in Shibuya as well as at a showcase in Shinagawa Station. The videos began running on April 28 and will continue to until May 4. Collaborations are also planned such as with Tomokazu Matsuyama’s piece Same Same, Different which will take place at NEWoMan Shinjuku.
This groundbreaking and international art collection has been devised to expand the Peanuts world. The Peanuts Global Artist Collective is a project by Peanuts Worldwide LLC officially approved by the Schulz family. To celebrate one year since its initiation, over 100 pieces of art by contemporary artists have been selected.
Seven artists have been finalized by Peanuts Worldwide LLC as endorsed by Culture Corps, each of which have a deep understanding of Peanuts and each of which has a long history of having their art exhibited to the public.
The artists participating in the exhibition include Tomokazu Matsuyama, Mr. A, Nina Chanel Abney, AVAF, Friends With You, Rob Pruit, and Kenny Scharf.
Original works by all seven artists will be displayed in Tokyo at the art exhibition. Each work is imbued with each artists’ unique approach and offer a new interpretation of Snoopy, such as Matsuyama’s Snoopy drawn emotionally into a colourful piece of art, or Pruit’s iconic panda drawn together in a fun confrontation with Schulz’s famous beagle.
This art tour is set to expand and head to Paris, Seoul, New York, San Francisco and Berlin at the start of this month before heading to Mexico City later in May.
