Pokémon upcycled art exhibition announced for Japan
One trainer's trash...
There have been plenty of Pokémon exhibits in Japan over the years, but there’s never been one quite like this.
Japan’s Tama Art University has announced a “Think with Pokemon: Art & Environment Education” art exhibit, and it’s set to kick off on March 26th, 2023 at an exhibition space in Tokyo’s Roppongi area. Those interested in attending will have until April 8th, 2023 to do so.
As you might be able to tell from the image above, this exhibit will feature Pokemon artwork that was created using ‘found materials,’ or in more inelegant terms, junk. While most of these items would take up space in dumps, Tama Art University students have taken these throwaway bits and turned them into something beautiful.
This art exhibit will feature 20 different Pokémon sculptures, and a small selection has been shown in advance. You can see one striking design above, but if you’d like to see a few more, you can find some preview images here.
Finally, children who check out this exhibit can also take part in a Pokémon crafts workshop. Those in attendance will have the opportunity to craft their own Poke Balls from upcycled materials. Of course, after the workshop is over, the kids get to take their new creations home.
