Live Paint DOJO, is an annual live paint battle the started in 2012 with the objective of elevating the social standing of Japan’s street culture.
On Saturday, April 18th 2015, a spin-off event called the Live Paint ZOJO will be held at the Zojo-ji or Buddhist temple located in Minato City in Tokyo. The area is special for its historic links to Japanese warrior Tokugawa Ieyasu, the founder of the Tokugawa clan during the Edo period.
Live Paint ZOJO, will feature artists who have taken 1st place at past Live Paint DOJO events, also live painting by the live paint duo, DOPPEL. There will be special interactive workshops for the attendees.
An interesting contrast to this modern street art event is the art fair ‘Tensai 108′, which will be held side by side with Live paint ZOJO at the same zojo-ji grounds. Tensai 108 art fair will feature the traditional Edo period ceramics and pottery. Come see what these two contrasting art expressions might evoke at the shared space and time.
