TOMODACHI’s collaborative art event with Japanese washi brand, mt tape, opened its doors this past Saturday and we couldn’t have been happier with the outcome! We had an amazing turnout at this unique exhibition and family event, with artists giving their all to show the world just what mt tape can do with a little bit of creativity!

TOMODACHI’s gallery debuted some amazing art and design work from 18 featured artists, who each took their own spin on using mt tape as a medium. From framed wall pieces to decorated paper mache animals, large-scale wall installations and even a miniature mt tape city, each artistic interpretation was unexpected, colorful and unique. Emerging and established artists alike took part in the exhibit, including internationally-renowned artist and graphic designer Michael Cina, pop surrealist darling Rudy Fig, whimsical painter Jennifer Davis, installation artist Leekyung Kang and many more.

During the event, Los Angeles-based artist and architect, James Rojas, led a hands-on art activity which taught attendees about urban planning through the construction of an evolving tape-covered mini city. Throughout the day, TOMODACHI gave away complimentary mt tape and dozens of raffle prizes that included collectibles, gift cards and merchandise from our sponsors. DJ SALLY provided the musical soundtrack for the day, playing a fun mix of J-Pop, K-Pop and everything in between.

We would like to thank everyone who made this event possible, including our friends at mt tape, all of our participating artists, sponsors, and most importantly our friends and customers who have supported us from the beginning. The show debut was a huge success, but if you weren’t able to make it to the opening, the work will remain on view through Wednesday, September 30th.
