Yesterday i ventured down to Ebisu’s East Gallery building with DF colleague Kenny to help take down a large size “live paint” project by the curiously named artist BRIDGE SHIP HOUSE (i know the reason for this name, but i’m not going to tell you…ask her yourself!) Bridgeshiphouse was invited to paint at the “IMPROVE” fashion project organized by Kenichi Saeki who had asked Design Festa to suggest a suitable on-site artist for the 3 day event….said Kenichi ” Bridgeshiphouse’s work totally exceeded my expectations! i’m really knocked out by her work !” The club-like basement venue below was packed out with forthcoming fashion lines ……….

said Bridge Ship House  ” I arrived with no set idea or concept until i actually took up my brush….i started with this character…….” (below)
