Going to Japan!

On March 16 I will start off an exciting artsy journey around Japan. During this trip I will get myself drenched into the Japanese contemporary art world; I will visit artists, exhibitions, events and many many other exciting things. It’s something I’ve been wanting to do for a long, long time so I’m very excited it’s finally going to happen. In fact:


For one month, ArtisticMoods.com will be all about Japanese contemporary art and illustration. I’m going to do my best to inspire you with amazing, stunning, breathtaking, art from one of my favorite countries in the world.

Looking for Japanese Artists & Hot Spots

If you are a Japan-based artist (or if you’re involved in art & illustration in a different way) and you would like to collaborate on something fun while I’m there, I’d be happy to hear from you! Perhaps we could plan a studio visit, go on a tour at an inspiring art district or you could tell me more about your work over a cup of warm sake.

I am also welcoming tips and ideas of any kind. In fact, I would absolutely love to get some good advices from people who have interesting things or places to share. Do you know about an amazing event I should visit? Is that one great illustrator opening his exhibition? Or do you know about a great artist that’s based in Japan? I would be happy to hear from you! I will most likely travel to Tokyo, Osaka & Kyoto and might be visiting other places too.

Any tips on the following subjects are welcome

  • Artists / illustrators
  • Art Events
  • Galleries
  • Exhibitions
  • Exhibition openings
  • Undiscovered artsy districts

I’m also looking for:

  • Good / Budget places to sleep
