|G Tokyo art event : http://www.gtokyo-art.com/#/op/|
I went to an art exhibition in a neighborhood at Roppongi Hills called G Tokyo. No idea what “G” stands for, but this is an exhibition of up and coming artists both Japanese and others. Found a couple of unique talents such as Djordje Ozbolt, who was originally from Yugoslavia. (linked here)
His work look like this, for example:

Obviously, he already has a big fan base, for there are blog articles about his work, everywhere. I wanted to buy his book, but too expensive. Can’t wait to see more in the near future!
One of the featured artists was Hisashi Tenmyouya. He uses traditional Japanese paints, a genre pretty common in the Japanese fine arts world. I was completely fascinated by his subjects, texture of the paints, and the colors on black backgrounds.

Last but not least, Kei Imazu had a very small lovely painting exhibited as a part of Bombay Sapphire funded collection. The one exhibited there cannot be found online, but her work look like this:

All in all, it was a great fun!
After that, I strolled around the neighborhood and bought some flowers at my favorite florist. The shop was literally full of gorgeous hyacinths, so naturally, a few bunches accompanied me home.
A new season is close…
But it’s still cold outside, so we need something for our tummies… like a divine hot chocolate.
On another topic, this guy and I have been bumping into each other quite often. I have been wanting to ask a permission to take a photo, and today, I found him left alone outside a grocer.
Don’t you think a grey short haired dog is the coolest, most fashionable thing?
He also has this very strange and funny expression… definitely something complex is going on in his head.
