We are honored to announce: Japan’s #1 Sumi Ink artist, SHIGEMOTO HIDEKICHI will come do a LIVE PAINT on stage at Yokota-Con!! Oct 19!
SHIGEMOTO is most famous for his non-traditional subjects using Sumi Ink (a traditional type of ink passed down through thousands of years in Asian territories you might have seen). He has been commissioned to paint Star Wars characters, Gundam robots, Beijing Olympics, and even Michael Jordan when he did a series for the NBA!
Shigemoto will take the stage to music and do a live paint on a large piece of Japanese “washi” paper. The design will be his original fantasy idea. Also, during the event, he will have a booth where he signs his original book NEO BLACK!
His live work will be donated to be displayed at the Yokota Air Base after the show!
