Seen: Konatsuya Dai Kaiju Exhibition at Q Pop
Q Pop in DTLA welcomed Japanese artist Konatsu for her Dai Kaiju Exhibition on Saturday evening (6.28). The show features artist customs of her popular Negora cat sofubi, two exclusive editions of the figure and several of her original Negora paintings. The long oval counter in the center of the store has become Negora central with customs from Amy Sol, Shimomoku, Devilrobots, 64 Colors, Luke Chueh, J*Ryu, Sket One, and Konatsu herself. Konatsu’s paintings were quite enjoyable and offered pairings of Negora with various animals –- a fish, fox, and a dragon come to mind as well as solo pieces. Q Pop also has a selection of Konatsu merchandise including copies of her art book which features a really nice collection of drawings and paintings, most featuring her cat character.
During the exhibition, Konatsu treated her fans to a live painting session. She quickly created her signature scenes –- first with black, brushed outlines and then watercolors to bring the pieces on paper to life. While we didn’t make it back out for the signing session on Sunday, Q Pop posted several pieces she completed during a 2nd live painting session, after she signed for fans and collectors.
Enjoy the pics from the opening of the fun exhibition which runs through July 13th. If you’re near LA, definitely take the time to check out the show in person.
