AJ Fosik – Beast From A Foreign Land – Tokyo

AJ Fosik has created 12 sculptures that were delivered to 12 artists in Tokyo by Hellion Gallery for a unique collaboration project. Unlike AJ’s normal work, these pieces are unfinished and can be disassembled so that each artist can customize each individual piece of the sculpture. The result will be a unique collaboration between a stellar list of artists in Tokyo and one of Portland’s most well-known artists.

Tokyo Art in The Streets – MOCAtv

This thought-provoking short film introduces contemporary street art in Japan through the imagery and thoughts of three internationally renowned artists: ESOW, AIKO, and the duo KAMI & SASU, who also go by the name HITOTZUKI. Each of them speaks about their culture and what compels them to create art in the streets while Tokyo’s sights and sounds, expertly recorded, provide a sensory view of the metropolis.

Bei Badgirl is a real-life Asian fantasy. Her candy-cane artwork carries the curvy sexuality of Miss Van, or Fafi, with seedier sexual overtones – bondage features heavily, alongside candy cane colours and strange Pokémon-style creatures on leashes. She’s recently returned to Australia from shows in the UK, we caught up with her ahead of this year’s charity art event, Sidewayz, to talk about bad bitches and cute stuff.

What inspires you to make the art you do?
