About The Nippon Experiment
The Nippon Experiment (TNE) is a series of art exhibits that illustrate the influence of Japanese culture on artists worldwide. The series aims to showcase the individual artists’ work on various canvases with one unifying theme: Japan!
Episode 1 – SKATE
TNE’s goal is to present artwork from various creators in a series of canvases that step a bit outside the box. Organizers will select a medium for each episode of the series. Each artist will use the canvas of that specific showcase to implement their creation. The manner of implementation, medium, and display is left up to the individual creators to decide.
TNE’s Art Showcase begins with the humble skateboard deck, and in future showcases the focus will be on items such as street signs, weathered wood, and visual projections.
