so i went to this huge wherehouse party in brooklyn.... Nov. 25th, 2005 @ 09:23 pm
and they were playing this really loud techno music... and there were these young women there dressed in what was a step above toilet paper. they were moving incredibly slow, despite being covered by super trippy psychedelic projections!!! apparently these graceful thin white women claimed to be gutai dancers.

i was so frightened. would anyone like to hold and comfort me?

they wore hot pink eyeshadow.

Looking for the young artist's scene in Tokyo Nov. 23rd, 2005 @ 05:59 pm

I'm a painter and I go to Japan twice a year. I would like to meet other painters there preferably of more or less the same age. I'm a 26 years old girl who lives in Antwerp and I paint abstract minimalistic paintings. I also make drawings and use photography to complete my style. Please can anyone tell me where or how to meet young artists in Tokyo? (Or interesting art galleries etc)


and if you're interested in what I make here's my lj:


Superflat Panel Oct. 26th, 2005 @ 04:34 am
Hey Everyone.

This weekend at Sugoicon, "Where's the Buffet?" will be hosting a panel on Superflat. This is our first time ever hosting this particular panel, and while we are very excited and have been doing a lot of research, we wanted to ask you, the viewer, what you would want to see in a Superflat panel.

Obviously a good part of the beginning will be focusing on WWII, and how it's completely influenced Japanese culture today.

As far as artists are concerned, our main focus will be on Takashi Murakami and Yoshitomo Nara, but we'll be talking about some other artists as well, such as Mr., Izumi Kato, Hideaki Kawashima, Kenji Yanobe, and Noboru Tsubaki.

The last half of the presentation will be about Otaku and Kawaii culture, and how it's viewed (western definition versus Japanese definition). I want to touch on Moratorium complex and Lolita Complex if I get a chance.

What I'm here for right now, is I want to ask you, as a community, what you would want to see in a Superflat panel. What should I add? Is there anything I should take out? What would you like to learn about in an hours span of time.

Searching Jun. 9th, 2005 @ 10:13 am

hello, great to find this group! I love old and modern Japanese art, i adore the graphic simplicity and the flowing lines. Recently I've finally been to Japan on vacation. I saw some really inspiring art from around 1930. I've been looking for more information on the technique and the artists ever since.  Does any of you know anthing about this?

Artists: Keigetsu Kikuchi - Koka Sato - Bakusen Tsuchida. There must be many more, these are only the ones I saw. Technique: Painting with rock pigments. It's a beautiful simple style of drawing/painting in simple lines with slightly glittering colours of the pigments. I couldnt believe i hadn't seen it before.

This is from Bakusen Tsuchida. It doesnt come across that well on this format. The original is pretty large.

Hey, everybody.

I'm an Art History major with a concentration in Asian art. This sounds like a very interesting community.

Sorry to start off with asking for something, but I'm doing a paper on Ukiyo-e art in the Edo period and its cultural significance, and I was wondering if I could get opinions on it through a survey I created. I don't need in-depth answers, just some quick responses would be wonderful. Some questions sound complicated, but simple answers will be great. If any awesome people want to help, here's the link: Click here to take the survey.

Thanks, and どうも ありがとう ございます。
