Supahcute puts on some really fantastic art shows – and this latest is no exception. Celebrating the wonderfully old-school theme of “kaiju”, the supahcute Kaiju Show opens this Saturday, January 18th at Leanna Lin’s Wonderland. Kaiju is a Japanese term that literally translates to “strange creature”. Godzilla would be the prime example and probably the most well-known here in the states. My piece (shown above) is titled “Kawaiiju” and features some iconic Japanese characters re-imagined as kaiju. This is a limited edition 1/1 giclee print and comes framed and signed.
Supahcute has once again rounded up an impressive list of artists for this show including – Jared Andrew Schorr, Vanessa Ramirez, 100% Soft, Fat Rabbit Farm, Camilo Bejarano, and Christopher Lee among others.
The opening reception for the show will take place from 6-10 PM on January 18th. You can RSVP to the even on the show’s Facebook page. There will be great art, treats and goodie bags – plus there will be some really cool merchandise created just for this show and available for purchase. Supply is limited so get there early if you want to get your hands on these items.
The Supah Mash-Up Art Party made its debut this past weekend. Here’s a shot of all the completed pieces for the show. I collaborated with Jared Andrew Schorr on three of the images shown above. These are all one-of-a-kind and come framed. Prints of the images are not available.
The Princess Mononoke image (top left) has sold. The rest of the pieces are still available. The two Ponyo images are sold as a set. Visit the links below for details on availability and purchasing.
Hana of supahcute.com is back with another art show! Teaming up once again with Leanna Lin’s Wonderland, this new show is all about collaborations. I am thrilled to be participating and even more excited to be partnering up with the super-talented Jared Andrew Schorr. I first met Jared at the opening of WonderGround Gallery last June. I’ve admired his work for some time and it’s a thrill to be collaborating with him on this show. We decided to do a tribute to the films of Studio Ghibli. We’re both big fans of these characters and stories so this show was great excuse to create some really fun pieces. We’ll both have individual pieces in the show along with the pieces we worked on together. All pieces will be for sale at the show. If you sign up with Leanna Lin’s website, you will have access to early previews and sales of all the pieces in this very cool show. Head on over to the site to see who else is participating. And if you’re close by, make sure to show up for opening night on May 11th from 6-10 PM.
Check out the thumbnails below for a little preview of our pieces. For my individual piece, I did a tribute to Princess Mononoke and Jared did a terrific Spirited Away piece. We collaborated on a set of Ponyo pieces and a great My Neighbor Totoro set-up. Please visit the websites for supahcute.com and Leanna Lin’s Wonderland for more information on the show and purchasing. The show will run from May 11 – July14th 2013.
