Last night I went to the Opening reception for the Japanese Artists Group Show, Fugetsu-Sha at Caelem Gallery in Chelsea. Now before I go on let me state that I did not just go for the free wine and ginger snap cookies, that were being served at the reception. But lets be real some secretly did. I digress. The exhibition featured around 250 different works from up and coming Japanese artists belonging to various schools of art. I’ve always had a fascination with Japanese culture since I was a child, starting with anime, like who didn’t watch Dragon Ball Z(all time best), Gundam Wing, Bleach, I could go on, but I won’t nerd out on you. The fascination has remained now as a young adult, but more so with their culture and subcultures-fashion and art being the greatest of interest. Check out a few photos from the reception below and be sure to stop by Caelum Gallery 508/512 West 26th street, Suit 315 New York, NY. Also visit their website at caelumgallery.com to see current and up coming exhibitions and follow on Instagram @caelumgallery.com. Exhibition runs until March 2nd. Don’t miss out on dope art you don’t really get,probably can’t afford, but you like it because it looks dope!
The four photos of the art are by me.
