Harajuku: Goth Meets Rainbow Brite

I’m way behind on my posting. It’s better this way though. I’d rather be living an exciting life than telling you about it, but doing both is not bad either. I’m going to jump out of chronological order to show what I did this weekend, because I am excited.

Michelle and I went to check out Sweet Streets 2, an art show at Gallery Nucleus displaying the Harajuku fashion and lifestyle through art.

This particular piece was a tapestry. Damn that’s a lot of dedication.

There were DJ’s spinning Japanese pop music there too.

There were even live painting/sketching demonstrations. I believe the girl in the middle is being drawn.

Last, but certainly not least, is my favorite piece titled “Harajuku Boy.”

The entire thing is done with different textured paper. I liked this piece a lot.

I liked it so much that I bought it. That red dot there is mine.

After a little bit of searching I found the artist, Megan Brain. She does some really cool stuff. It’s always nice to see art done without paint or ink.
