[ARTIDE second edition decided! ] Open recruitment for new participating artists starts, POPUP will be held from 10/27
We have decided to implement the second installment of ``ARTIDE'', a project that challenges new expressions through the fusion of art and craft brands. In the first part of ARTIDE, we announced the product together with five artists on the crowdfunding Makuake in November 2020, and received a great response, with the number sold out in about 40 minutes after the launch.
For the second round, we will be recruiting new artists in addition to the four people who participated in the first round. Please be sure to check out the information about the open call for entries, which can be found on the official call for entries overview page on the official website and on Toryumon, one of Japan's largest contest information sites .
In addition, we have decided to hold a POPUP event from October 27th to November 2nd, 2021 (scheduled). We will be selling ARTIDE second edition products and ARTIDE original paintings by each artist, so please look forward to it.
