STEWED 4 BEEF

December 25th, 2009 No comments

oh , hey there merry xmas y’all!

ok today and until the 29th, 4 former students of the prestigious Musashino Art University present 4 very different art expressions in spaces 2B & 2C, according to my friend Mutsumi the “Beef” exhibition title stemmed from a promise they all made while at school that they would all exhibit together with their own work OR they would all have to pay for a slap-up BBQ beef dinner! well here they are! and let me tell you there are some simply fantastic works on display here!……..check this out or better still come down and visit these very talented young artists!
