Beams & Co have announced that they are curating an exhibition of graphic artist Jean Jullien’s work for Harajuku Tokyo-based space Gallery Target.
It is the first time that the French illustrator and artist will have exhibited in the gallery, and the latest in a long line of gallery shows including the Tate, HVW8 in Los Angeles and Berlin, Wythe Hotel in Brooklyn, the National Museum of Singapore, Kemistry Gallery in London and MIMA Museum in Brussels.
Jean Jullien’s upbringing near the sea in Brittany, France was the main inspiration for the exhibition, which is titled Onaji Umi and will be on show at the Tokyo gallery from 12th — 26th May. “From the beach of Malibu to Belize to Greece or Iceland, it seems like the sea is the same, like a travel companion which reminds you of home,” Jean explains. “It’s an incredibly powerful element, changing yet constant. I wanted the exhibition to be about that: the ocean, it’s fauna and flora and the activities around it.”
Beams have marked the occasion with a series of collaborations with the likes of Beams T, Fabrick, Rutsubo and others.
