JUNKO MIZUNO FIGURINE at ... IKEA !!

f0126666_17581102.jpg
Do you know IKEA? I’m sure you do!
How about IKEA Art Event?
Every year, IKEA invites contemporary artists from around the world to co-create art that can be put in any home. For 2018, they decided to mash up designer toys & handmade Swedish art glass and create a series of art glass figurines.
Junko Mizuno is one of the eight artists taking part in this project.
She designed an owl girl, that was made into a glass figurine called 'Nocturnal' by the most skilled glass masters in Sweden.
The other artists are : Michael Lau, Coarse, Arkiv Vilmansa, Nathan Jurevicius, Ludvig Löfgren, Joe Ledbetter and James Jarvis
Check out the teaser video here!

They'll will be available for a limited time starting in April 2018, but looks like some IKEA stores in the
US are already selling them. The photo below was taken at the Burbank store by Joe Ledbetter.
So far, the figurines are supposed to be available at these countries:
Japan, Hong Kong, China, Indonesia, South Korea, USA, Canada, Germany, France, UK, Italy, Spain and Sweden.
Availability depends on the area you live. Some locations/ online IKEA stores may/may not have them. Please contact your local IKEA store or their online store directly and ask if they'll have IKEA Art Event 2018 glass figurines! Thanks!

TAKARABUNE GICLEE ART PRINT!

'Takarabune' was the main painting for my solo art show at Gallery Nucleus in 2016.
Now it's available as a giclee print!

About Takarabune:
Takarabunne is a large ship with treasures such as coral, gold, silver, gemstones and
The Seven Lucky Gods (七 福神, shichi fukujin in Japanese) on it.
The ship is often depicted in paintings and sculptures and has been appreciated by many because the image is believed to bring good luck.
The Seven Lucky Gods are:
Ebisu: God of Ocean
Hotei: God of Happiness
Fukurokuju: God of Longevity
Benzaiten: Goddess of Music
Bishamonten:God of Wealth
Jurojin: God of Wisdom
Daikokuten: God of Earth
Only one of them is supposed to be female but I created my own, all-female version of The Seven Lucky Gods for this painting.

During the Edo period, it became a popular custom among common people to place takarabune pictures under one's pillow on the second night of the New Year to induce auspicious dreams and resulting good fortune.

Maybe this art print will bring you good luck for 2018...? :))
Get your copy now at Gallery Nucleus online store!
