In Tokyo, Shinjuku Creators Festa 2013 is popping off right now. The 17-day all art everywhere is an ambitious attempt to get heads poked in parts of Shinjuku that otherwise go unexplored by mainstream foot traffic. Special honored guests include poke-a-dot lady Yayoi Kusama and CG artist Yoichiro Kawauguchi. Kusama’s work is ever hypnotizing and unassumingly fascinating. Kawauguchi is a man of his times, but it took decades for the times to catch up to him.
If you can read Japanese, the map is below the artists’ images, but random selection is equally effective. There’s a lot to digest, but if you find an English translation, hit me up. Happy hunting.
