Art born from Japanese Modern Culture

BIRTH introduced 56 Japanese artists currently active in the art sphere. We are proud to introduce not only the artists themselves, but a collection of 200 of their works.

The works listed here cover a wide range of subjects and techniques, varying greatly in form of expression and materials, depending on each individual artist. When viewed as a collection, these works may seem to lack cohesion, however, the purpose of this volume is to allow people see a corner of the forefront of Japanese art across a variety of genres.

If successful, it is hoped that this book BIRTH will be a step toward a world like the birth of a star, a steppingstone to new connections with artists that spark interest and imagination, not only in Japan, but around the world.

Japanese Art Trends

KAWAii ART COLLECTION introduces 55 Japanese artists currently active in the art sphere.

As we enter the 21st Century the Japanese concept of kawaii has become world renowned.

But exactly what does kawaii mean?

When required, the default English translation of the Japanese word kawaii is “cute”, or perhaps the words “pretty” and “sweet” also spring to mind. However, the term kawaii, which has gained worldwide recognition, is not limited to these meanings. Does kawaii denote loveliness beyond the simple term “cute”? Or is it an indescribable quality closely related to one’s own individual taste?  Kawaii is all these things and more. Each of us has our own definition of kawaii, and we use the term in our own particular way.

It may be said that the concept of kawaii is an energy source that diversifies the world in which we live. At this stage, the depth of meaning that kawaii holds seems to be endless.

The artists featured in this publication have begun to gain much wider recognition outside Japan and the future looks bright for kawaii art. It’s exciting to see how far kawaii art will advance around the world!
