Disseminating the charm of Maru Seal Art at Eki-naka-Children and contemporary artist Yukino Omura’s works are on display at the Echika Ikebukuro Gallery-


At the Echika Ikebukuro Gallery (inside Tokyo Metro Ikebukuro Station), the "Children x Yukino Omura Maru Seal Art Charm" exhibition is being held until Tuesday, March 30th.

This exhibition is being carried out as part of the "Bridge Project" that connects children and art, which was launched in 2018.

This project, "Let's play with a round sticker !!", uses "things that anyone can easily get" as a material, and art is close to life, while children are deprived of the opportunity to go out due to the corona virus. It started in the summer of 2020 with the hope of becoming.

From children who worked on the "paste painting kit" supervised by Mr. Omura with the cooperation of Mr. Yukino Omura, a contemporary artist known for works using familiar "round stickers" used for color classification of documents. We are looking for round sticker works. There were more than 100 applications. Mr. Omura put together the submitted works into a large collaborative work, and from October last year, a traveling exhibition was held at the facilities in the ward.

In this exhibition, which concludes, we also introduce Mr. Omura's representative works. Please enjoy the original works created from familiar materials used in daily life.
