With the advent of “ArtSticker”, the future where everyone can get involved in art is about to open. The decision was made by Ryohei Nawa, who is based in Kyoto and is developing collaborations with domestic and international exhibitions and creators of other genres. We have created a new cycle of art, such as launching “SANDWICH,” a platform for creation. The new synergy created by “ArtSticker” and Mr. Nawa will be a trigger to accelerate the autonomy of art. Opened an interview article by Ryohei Nawa x Masamichi Toyama at CasaBRUTUS Online [Image 2: https://prtimes.jp/i/38948/8/resize/d38948-8-701989-1.png] (Excerpt from CasaBRUTUS Online. Please see the article link for details.) “When an artist belongs to a gallery and works, there is a reality that he needs something that is easy to ride on the market. Also, in fact, it is hard to sell installations as works. But if a system like this “ArtSticker” spreads, it may open up other possibilities. With the power of support, it may be possible to aggressively develop products that are not market-driven and beyond that limit. “(Nawa Kohei) “Kohei Nawa also announced participation! The app “ArtSticker” is a topic that everyone is involved in art. ” URL: casabrutus.com/art/105471 About Nawa Kohei Sculptor / President of SANDWICH Inc. / Professor of Kyoto University of Art and Design Born in 1975.

Special Exhibition about Kouhei Nawa Foam (Kanazawa 21st Century Museum of Art) [Image 5: https://prtimes.jp/i/38948/8/resize/d38948-8-561128-4.jpg] (Excerpt from Kanazawa 21st Century Museum of Art HP) Kohei Nawa will exhibit “Foam”, an installation work of bubbles and lights at this exhibition. The small bubbles that spring out one after another gradually gather, and express the appearance of autonomously forming an organic structure as a foam aggregate. The individual bubbles that repeat the simple process of generation and extinction are similar to the essential behavior of the cells that support metabolism and circulation, and remind the viewer of the source of life. www.kanazawa21.jp/ Organized by: Kanazawa 21st Century Museum [Kanazawa Art Creation Foundation] Subsidy: Arts and Culture Promotion Fund Cooperation: Daiwa Business Co., Ltd.
