Tokyo Genso / 88Graph 'Kabukicho Genso'
Free international shipping
The largest entertainment district in Japan is Shinjuku Kabukicho. The town's symbol, "Kabukicho Ichibangai," is prominently displayed on a red signboard. The night sky is filled with cherry blossoms that are in full bloom all over it. In the middle is a tiger. The Japanese proverb "If you drink sake, you become a tiger" served as the inspiration for the creation.
When interviewed previously, Tokyo Genso said.
“Shinjuku has appeared in quite a number of my works, so I assumed Kabukicho was the only option. Although I had visited Kabukicho frequently to take pictures and had been considering creating new works, I had been struggling with it for a while—close to ten years, I believe. My works turned out to be completely uninteresting. (omitted) But I was certain it had to be here. This signboard was really impressive.”
“It's said that drinking turns a guy into a tiger. I had a vision of a drunken, dozing tiger. I thought it would fit my work of Kabukicho.”
On the Art Print, from EDITION88
We first spent a lot of time meticulously recreating the vibrant cherry blossoms because they are so striking and occupy the entire screen. In order to preserve the details in the dark areas, we paid close attention to the contrast.
