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 (https://jasonfreeny.com/collections/all) and the Colossal online shop sells actual models of the rubber duck, the gummy bear, and the balloon dog (http://www.thisiscolossal.com/2016/03/anatomical-balloon-dog-and-rubber-ducky-models-by-jason-freeny/) Just sayin’!
When not franting about at art galleries, Jonelle Patrick writes novels set in Tokyo
Writing mystery books set in Tokyo is mostly what I do, but I also blog about the odd stuff I see every day in Japan. I'm a graduate of Stanford University and the Sendagaya Japanese Institute in Tokyo, and a member of the International Thriller Writers, the Mystery Writers of America, and Sisters In Crime. When I'm not in Tokyo, I live in San Francisco. I also host a travel site called The Tokyo Guide I Wish I'd Had, so if you're headed to Japan and want to check out the places I take my friends when they're in town, take a look!
