This past spring the Japan Society of New York featured the exhibit Edo Pop: The Graphic Impact of Japanese Prints. To quote from the Society's description of this show; "Edo Pop playfully juxtaposes classic ukiyo-e prints from such masters as Katsushika Hokusai and Utagawa Hiroshige with contemporary works inspired by these artists and their works. Delve into alluring worlds created by the power of Edo period and contemporary popular culture in which change is the only constant."
In the entry area was a large mural painted by the artist (Lady) Aiko. For a video of her at work on her piece called Sunrise click this. And hooray photos were allowed in this area of the show. As a fan of the graffiti artist I put this exhibit at the top of my must see list. Aiko has been based in New York for several years and I enjoy how she combines images of Japanese art with Western images.
