Tucked away at a full scale PR and Marketing company, 72andSunny near LAX is a workspace and gallery who are hosting, the partner – husband + wife team, Kami and Sasu, also known as Hitotzuki. Hailing from Nakameguro, Tokyo the duo have painted numerous murals in Japan and have worked nearly two weeks on a signature wall piece which will stay “permanently”. Both with a cheerful and happy worth ethic, they brought their three year old son who plays in the space while they’re work on individual paintings which will be hung on their mural. I’ve interviewed Kami in the past for the cover of Giant Robot #56 and also curated him in an exhibition into an exhibition at the Scion Art Space in Culver City. Insiders, Outsiders, and the Middle and it’s great that 72andSunny has picked up the “ball” and ran further with it by bringing his wife, Sasu to do a mural. I wanted to bring Sasu three years ago, but their son was a newborn at the time. The opening tonite is private, but maybe you can catch it down the road. To view the pieces
Please email events@72andSunny.com
The gallery will be open until June 26th
We have some Kami goods left at the GR store. Not a lot, but hard to get.
