[Our man in Japan, Luke Rook, brings us a look at Geisai #12, a showcase of rising artists started by Takashi Murakami, which went down a Tokyo Big Sight this past Sunday (3.8). Naturally, his focus is on the art and toys you all want to see. Enjoy.]
Geisai #12 came and went. It’s like Design Festa but more expensive and less fun. Although I didn’t actually pay, (thanks Goccodo boys). Had I of paid and already seen most of this work at Design Festa last year I would of been bummed. It’s a lot of the art for art’s sake a bit homogeneous and the booths tend to bend together with most work looking similar. There were a few jewels. Like Sunguts newest Yokai figure and Goccodo’s new man on the can. [ed: Loads of pics after the jump].
