[Seibu Ikebukuro Main Store] “Pictures and Words” -The World of Kin Shiotani, Illustrator-


Let's dare to send postcards in this era where you can immediately convey "things" to people all over the world

We will hold a pop-up of illustrator Kin Shiotani, who creates various art works including postcards, with the theme of "pictures and words". Now that we can communicate with people all over the world in real time, such as by e-mail and LINE, we suggest that you feel the goodness of communicating warmth with analog means and postcards.

■ Session: December 15th (Wednesday) -26th (Sunday), 2021
■ Venue: Seibu Ikebukuro Main Store 3rd Floor (South B10) = Event Space Split Ring

Illustrator Kin Shiotani started selling postcards at general stores and art shops nationwide in 1995, and to this day there are more than 100 types. All works have poetic titles, and "pictures and words" is also the theme of Kin Shiotani's art.


At this pop-up shop, 110 types of postcards, including discontinued editions from the "Long Title Series" announced in 1995 to the "Blur Drawing" announced in 2020, will be exhibited and sold.
Reading the poetic titles of each piece expands the imagination of the recipient endlessly. Why don't you touch the world of Kin Shiotani, write a stroke to your friends and family, and post it to the mailbox.


A style of painting that you will never forget once you see it, and "a young man who wants to live positively but is at a loss because he doesn't know which one is ahead" "I'm thinking of finding the cleanest piece of snow and eating it. The title is a perfect balance of titles like poetry of freedom that pierces the heart, such as "Youth" and "Youth who are dying the more they live, but now they are thinking of making coffee". If you look at the picture for a while while keeping in mind, you will have an infinite imagination.

Comment from Kin Shiotani
"When I make postcards, I often write pictures and titles separately. Matching them in a way like a ghost leg before the deadline creates a work that I never thought of. I tried to collect the original paintings before such a title was decided. There are quite a few works that I have a strong feeling for, but I will sell them at this opportunity. If you like, please take them home and pet them. "(Kin Shiotani)
