Happy New Year 2019 -Sharing with you a piece of WOW this holiday season-
WOW magazine 145 - Jan. 1st, 2019
We have made holiday cards which links videos as our very first artwork of 2019.
In total, there are 12 different designs of the holiday cards that we have created this time.
With Metafont as a focal point, part of the design process utilizes the letters H, N, and Y to visually compose 12 different images that appear and disappear. In this way, 12 different cards are randomly sent in a single arrangement. The receiver can then visualize each of the WOW designs that cannot be captured in a single frame.
Tsurutaro Kataoka continues to demonstrate diverse talents as a painter and calligrapher, while also sometimes performing as an actor, at other times as an entertainer. In 2019, Kataoka will be celebrating his 25th anniversary in painting and a 45-year career in the performing arts. This commemorative exhibition will open on Thursday, December 27th at Matsuya Ginza. The exhibition will present over 100 works, including new pieces, representative works, and also unreleased works created by Kataoka.
