Live On: Mr.'s Japanese Neo-Pop [Seattle]

Tuesday, November 25, 2014










The artist, Mr. (left) and his Japanese translator (right)


Last Thursday I was invited to attend the Live On: Mr.'s Japanese Neo-Pop art exhibit at the Seattle Asian Art Museum. It was for the press event so all the bloggers and reporters were there to meet the artist, Mr. and hear his press conference on what made him start this type of work. Then right after we got a tour by Mr. himself explaining each of the piece of art. He also talked about the inspiration was behind each one. My favorite was his animation portrait of Pharrell Williams who he is also friends with. How cool is that?! Mr. came off as a real soft-spoken and humble guy and had his Japanese translator next to him the entire time for any questions. Since this was a press event, they were still setting up parts of the exhibit (majority was ready) and I can tell by Mr.'s hands that he was in the midst of working on more art. :) Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed the tour and exhibit and I want to say thanks to the SAM for the press passes!
