This thought-provoking short film introduces contemporary street art in Japan through the imagery and thoughts of three internationally renowned artists: ESOW, AIKO, and the duo KAMI & SASU, who also go by the name HITOTZUKI.
Each of them speaks about their culture and what compels them to create art in the streets while Tokyo’s sights and sounds, expertly recorded, provide a sensory view of the metropolis.
It is interesting that whilst their artwork has a distinctly Japanese style, their reasons for being street artists are much the same as those of creatives the world over. Existing in a state of “existential anxiety” as someone aptly described it in this video, could be said about many city-dwellers.
