Join us for the opening of “IKIGAI” on June 21st at 6PM at Basement Ginza, B1F 4-3-5 Ginza, Tokyo
“IKIGAI” will present a new series of work by several artists, major names in the international street art scene, some of them to be shown for the first time in Japan.
Ikigai is a Japanese concept that means “a reason for being.” The word “Ikigai” is usually used to indicate the source of value in one’s life or the things that make one’s life worthwhile. The word translated to English roughly means “thing that you live for” or “the reason for which you wake up in the morning.” Each individual’s ikigai is personal to them and specific to their lives, values and beliefs.
“IKIGAI” is curated by Rom Levy and supported by Gypsy Eyes Tokyo. Each artists has been asked to create or submit works based on IKIGAI and develop their own interpretation of this unique Japanese Philosophy.
The exhibition brings together the work of a give artists whose work and practices embrace multiple facets of Street and Urban Art. A group of voices that call to question the history of IKIGAI, the process of thinking and behaving, and offering a presage of perhaps a new way forward
