Let’s Celebrate New Year 2018 with Art Featuring Dogs!
Together with Hakkendo Inc., an art gallery which provides support for young artists, ITOCHU will jointly organize a large-scale exhibition to showcase artworks featuring dogs, which is the animal of the Chinese zodiac for 2018, created by more than 100 young and energetic artists at the ITOCHU AOYAMA ART SQUARE. This is an initiative of joint efforts by company and gallery to support artists who have few chances of publicizing their work, from the perspective of encouraging the future generation. This series of exhibitions with the theme of the Chinese zodiac animals has been held since 2015.
With an endorsement from FamilyMart Co., Ltd., this year’s exhibition also features the New Year’s Cards by Young Artists which will be commercialized as a special project of the company’s New Year’s card printing service. Fresh and energetic works of eighteen selected artists will be displayed as celebratory images for the New Year. Originals of these illustrations will also be exhibited for sale in the exhibition.
Please come and take a look at varieties of dog images illustrated by young artists, including active art students who are set to play leading roles in the future art world.
