Today begins a new round of the 100 Painters Exhibition in Akihabara, a shopping area in centeral Tokyo often called “Akiba” for short. The district is famous for its large selection of electronic, computer, videogame, and anime stores that draw tourists from all over the world. While the large majority of artists being featured are from Japan, a very select few contributors from other countries were chosen, including Camilla!
The piece on display is “Playful Bunny,” which debuted at the Red Light Exhibition at Dirty Show in Detroit, Michigan last year. The original piece has already sold, but it’s an honor to be able to have the art shown in such an exciting Tokyo location. Just click on the image for a larger version, but be warned that the art is a bit risqué.
For more details, you can visit the 100 Painters Exhibition website. Do you speak Japanese or know more about the history of the Akiba district? If so, we’d love to learn more. Please write your comments below or on the Faceook page for everyone to see. Thanks!
P.S. – Don’t forget about Mother’s Day! The limited edition handbags are still on-sale, but won’t be available for long!
