Mariya Suzuki – Mug Cup Portrait Pop-Up

1:00pm – 4:00pm
¥2,000 (on the door)

Have a talented young Japanese do a portrait of your mug, on a mug! As part Mariya’s exhibition, she’ll be a special pop event where you can have your portrait drawn on a mug. The Portrait will be drawn on a mug cup, which will be fired and mailed to you later.

In her new show, “Urban Types” on display now through February 19 at Books & Sons in Gakugeidaku, Suzuki makes the mundane magical as her detailed musings are shown in bolder colors and on larger canvases than previous work. This new palette and scale may have been influenced by the mural work the artist did last year for several office installations, or it may be because she just returned from a trip across the colorful expanse of the United States which inspired these pieces.
