HITOTZUKI – The Firmament

Monday 06 December, 2010 | By Edo

So the other night I was chatting with my friend, art blogger Yuki, about well, art. It all started with chats about the new mural Kenny Scharf was putting up on Houston. Asking if she saw it, what she thought, and so on. Then I sent her a link to the Supakitch & Koralie video post that I upped a little while ago. It was then that she put me on to Kami and Sasu, aka HITOTZUKI. A Japanese couple who are also street artists. Yuki explained to me that they are part of The Barnstormers, a NYC/Tokyo based collective that is made up of artists who create large-scale artwork and exhibitions. I started checking out HITOTZUKI‘s site and found this amazing video of ‘The Firmament‘ project they completed at the Mori Art Museum in Tokyo. At first glance, I thought I was looking at an amazing piece of 2D work. However, as I continued to look at the image I realized how incredible this project actually was. Check it out and prepare to be amazed at the level of collaboration and creativity! It must’ve been fun to be there.

Check out HITOTZUKI for the latest updates and their work and upcoming exhibitions. Also have a look at their shop if you have some spare Yen that you want to spend on quality.

Shouts to Yuki for putting me on! ありがとうね!
