It’s not often that I walk through an art show where each piece is more surprising and delightful than the last, but Jason Freeny’s “Plastic Surgeon” exhibit at the Megumi Ogita Gallery really pushed my amusement meter into the red zone!
I’m resisting the temptation to be Lady Spoiler of Spoilerfell by posting all the goodness here, because you really ought to drop by and see these for yourself. A five-minute walk from Ginza Station will get you all of these, plus Gudetama revealed, what’s really beneath the surface of your favorite scantily-clad anime idol, and much, much more!
Exhibition: Jason Freeny, “Plastic Surgeon”
Where: Megumi Ogita Gallery, 2-16-12 B1 Ginza, Chuo-ku, Tokyo
When: September 15 – October 5, 2017
Hours: 11:00 – 19:00, closed Sundays & Mondays
Additional note: If you’re like me and you ‘re always keeping an eye out for gifts to give your eccentric friends, the artist sells a great prints of his work on his website and the Colossal online shop sells actual models of the rubber duck, the gummy bear, and the balloon dog. Just sayin’!

This show would KILL in Portland!
And in San Francisco! I had a moment of trepidation about posting this (because my blog is supposed to be Only In Japan) because he’s actually an American sculptor. There are a bunch of other great pieces on his website https://jasonfreeny.com, and once I went there, I realized I’d seen his stuff somewhere before. Tracked it down on the Colossal site, where (be still my Xmas-present-shopping heart!) a few of them are for sale as models! http://www.thisiscolossal.com/2016/03/anatomical-balloon-dog-and-rubber-ducky-models-by-jason-freeny/
Why is that that the chocolate bunny is creepier than Mario? Spongebob’s skeleton is shown on the show somewhat frequently, but that chocolate bunny? Yikes.
I know, right? There’s something quite disturbing about innards made of chocolate O_O
