“Konomachi-ten: This Town” Erica Ward Illustration Exhibition

21st Aug–10th Sep, 2016 11:30am – 2:00am

Come see the detail and quirk of Erica Ward’s Japanese-inspired illustrations while sipping a latte inside a vintage VW Bus! Erica Ward is a Tokyo-based pen and watercolor artist whose illustrations will be on display at Roppongi’s “Cafe Frangipani” from August 21 until September 10.

Ward, a California native, has resided in Japan for six years and the influence of her surroundings runs wild in her artworks. Her motifs include a range of colorful Japanese imagery from kimono to vending machines, mixed in with skyscrapers and electric guitars. The current selection displayed in “Konomachi-ten” focuses on motifs of ‘Tokyo’.

Cafe Frangipani is easy to find and just a short walk from the Mori Art Museum and Roppongi Hills complex in Roppongi. Part of Frangipani’s charm, sub-named “The VW Bus Cafe,” is the real-life Volkswagen Bus parked inside. A single cozy table inside the bus could be just the place for a summer lunch.

Entrance is free, but the illustrations are displayed in the cafe’s seating area, so please consider purchasing a menu item (starting at 400 yen) to enjoy while viewing the works.
