A shipping container in my hairdresser’s salon On September 26th many TaT members attended a Vernissage at The Container. The art collective Chim Pom showed their last work: “Kissing”. A lively evening, many artists and art-lovers didn’t want to miss this event. Inside the container, a tender movie where two light bulbs flirt and meet, only to break into pieces. On a platform we could see all this broken glass. On the wall, a big picture with a young lady suggestively posing before a near live-sized crucified Christ completed the exhibition. To learn more about Kissing,

A group of Tat members goes to The Pink Cow in Omotesando. The concept behind the Pink Cow is to support the arts, music and community charities in a relaxing environment with homemade food.
Again an evening full of colour, DJ electronic music, good Cal-Mex food and drinks and an outstanding performance by Grégoire Poitevin, a French artist living in Japan. A little stage, everything properly covered, primary acrylic colours, a few brushes and a big canvas yet to be filled… Two fascinating hours of painting, contemplating how an artist works, from the first composition lines until the finished work of art. Grégoire is a featured artist in Tat’s website.

A group of Tat Members visits the tiniest Gallery ever: Tana, the Gallery Bookshelf We went to this unconventional, non-comercial place to discover the latest works from Oyama Enrico Osamu’s “I know You Don’t Really Care, For It” . A young Japanese-Italian artist, Enrico displayed four tiny works using sharp pencil, painstackingly executed on paper. We would have said that these tiny pieces of paper were texturized. He held also a talk about his works and inspiration, firmly based in a strong graphic artistic background.

A group of art lovers and Tat members visit the Tolman Collection Gallery. It was a warm and beautiful evening in an enchanting old traditional Japanese merchant’s house. We were surrounded by wood and tatami rooms displaying the latest works from Ms Toko Shinoda, one of the oldest living Japanese artists. Painted on gold and silver foil, these new compositions showed, as Mr Tolman said, “yet again that Ms Shinoda has not lost any of her fabled accomplishment which still makes her shine at 98.”
