Original Limited-Edition Ukiyo-e Art Derivatives and Live Ukiyo-e Portraits

 

K11 strives to provide a platform to promote contemporary art. Following last year's collaboration on “The Arrival of Cosmic Girl”, K11 is once again collaborating with JPS Gallery, teaming up with four prominent ukiyo-e artists, Horihiro Mitomo, Ukiyoemon Mitomoya, Horitatsu and Bang Ganji to jointly present “K11 Art Matsuri” Modern Art of Floating World Exhibition from now until 1 July. In a break from tradition, these four artists bridge the gap between traditional art and everyday life, combining ukiyo-e with modern elements and fusing different cultural elements into a cool 'new' art form – after all, everyday life is exactly what ukiyo-e is about.

 

The exhibit has six main segments – Street Fashion, Japanese Work Culture, Anime, Manga Culture and Yokai Culture, with the aim of savouring the meaning behind ukiyo-e, and correlating it with the viewer’s own life experience and values.

 

Other programmes: The Complete Japanese Experience

Numerous K11 merchants will also feature products from Japan, allowing you to experience Japanese culture from every angle.
