Tokyo Street Art Research

A 5,500 image survey of street art in selected areas of Tokyo (Shibuya, Shinjuku (Kabukicho, Hyakunincho), Kunitachi) collected as part of an investigation into the relationship of creative uses of public space and spatial configuration.

"On one hand, it trashes the pristine image of Japan held by so many (myself included). On the other hand, it reaffirms the belief that Japan is not a technocrat society but rather teeming with creativity."
(Ian Chun, co-founder and president of Matcha Latte Media)
