Here’s a loaded exclusive preview of the Kokeshi show opening on Saturday, November 3rd, 2007 @ Subtext in San Diego. The show falls on and celebrates Bunka No Hi (Japan’s culture day) with wooden Kokeshi dolls from an international group of 75 artists
hailing from 13 countries. Traditionally created as souvenirs for
tourists visting Japan’s hot springs, Kokeshi Dolls will now serve as
fresh canvases for some of the world’s top young artists and
illustrators as selected by curator Christina Conway.
Enjoy these pieces by Colorblok, Edwin Ushiro, Luke Feldman, Matias Vigliano, Tessar Lo, and Tiffany Liu. Inspired? You can create your own custom by purchasing a 5.5" blank wood Kokeshi. If you can, plan to be at the opening on the 3rd.
