OHAKO 30 Japanese Art Boxes


The ICN gallery will open with a very special exhibition entitled ‘OHAKO'. The word means ‘one's best skill' but is also the word for traditional Japanese tea boxes. Each of the 30 participating artists, who are leading the creative culture scene in Japan today, specialising in manga art, ceramics, architecture, fashion design, character design and fine art, were given a traditional tea box from Shizuoka. They created a unique piece of art that is housed inside, transforming it into an art box, with a view to giving London visitors a rare opportunity to experience the unique harmony of the Japanese arts using a combination of traditional and contemporary expression.
