Below is s message from Mr. Yamao, please give it a read.
This year, “Live Paint Dojo” will feature twenty-five individual head to head matches and 7 team competitions.
Contemporary Artist Tenmyouya Hisashi, Hip-Hop artist KILLER-BONG, and Takumi Kaseno from Kaikai Kiki are the jurors and I hope to hold a lively discussion about how we can survive in this world as painters and performers.
Japan’s live painting culture brings together several genres of painting and I created this event to contribute to its development, as well as to provide an outlet for artists from around the country to display and develop their skills. Please do not hesitate to come if you are interested.
In other news, we just found out that Tomo Matsuoka is also going to join the team competitions at “Live Paint Dojo”.
If you are a GEISAI exhibitor who has already applied for a live painting booth or have been wondering whether to apply or not, please visit this event to learn more about the emerging live painting culture.
