Live paint wall manga artist Shinnosuke Uchida has been invited as a Featured Artist to perform a large scale piece of artwork during the 2019 Anime Expo in downtown Los Angeles, California. This will be the first year the famed Expo includes live painting in its repertoire and they have chosen only two artists – Uchida from Tokyo and a local California artist Jared Yamahata. The location of the paint will occur in the section known as The Annex which also houses Artist’s Alley. In this spot, Tokyo Direct will arrange a booth to sell original, limited edition T-shirts and other items while showcasing the work of various Japanese pop artists.
The event runs July 4-7 at the LA Convention Center with Uchida’s large scale artwork being auctioned for charity on the 7th along with 5 smaller items of note.
