Even without graffiti or stenciled art the new exhibition of urban street art from Japan at Ikkan Art International, has a very hip vibe. That sense might have something to do with the feelings created by the large breakdancing sculptures of Taki Obatu, a B-BOY dancer turned sculptor who has immortalize his crew in the ultimate “freeze’ stance. The hand-chiseled, wooden sculptures display a remarkable sense of energy and an uncannily real street attitude.

Rather than being the sole creators of a work of art, new media artists often offer audiences the opportunity to interact with and contribute to their art works. "What a Loving, and Beautiful World" by Japanese calligrapher Sisyu and teamLab is such a piece where slowly falling kanji (the Chinese characters used in Japan) for words like ‘rain,’ ‘flower’ and ‘butterfly’ transform when touched by a viewer’s shadow to become the image of the word they represent while a corresponding sound is heard.

Japanese artist Ai Yamaguchi has opened in Hong Kongher first solo exhibition. The contemporary artist has achieved an international reputation for her strongly characterized style and unique synthesis of the traditional Japanese ukiyoe style with contemporary interpretation, as she incorporates a realistic quality of animé into her imaginative landscapes using the "flat" style of Japanese paintings.
For the exhibition at 10 Chancery Lane Gallery, Yamaguchi installed her largest multi-canvas work to date inside the gallery's space in SoHo, complemented with large site-specific wall murals. These works, entitled ashita mata, take their reference from calligraphy and are deliberately made into pieces, suggesting a fleeting feeling of a lost unity.
