TOYOWADO and Hosomi Art Museum (Kyoto) which mainly collects Japanese style art works united a team called “RINne Associe”

In recent years, Japanese culture is being reassessed. For example, the works of Rinpa gained publicity in 2015 and the works of Jakuchu Ito gained publicity in 2016.
The title of the exhibition is “Bokura ga Nihon wo Tsuideiku (we will carry on the culture of Japan)” since the holders of the exhibition are wishing that young Japanese people carry on the culture of Japan.
To realize their dream, they united old Japanese style paintings and “manga/animation” which are new forms of Japanese culture. Under the supervision of Yoshiyuki Hosomi who is the curator of Hosomi Art Museum, they united the works of Rinpa and Jakuchu with popular modern Japanese characters. The art works were created by the painters of TOYOWADO.
Moreover, they will sell limited products such as original post cards and clear files.
Don’t miss this collaborative event between Japanese style paintings and characters of Japanese animations.
