Last week in Japan, StreetArtNews opened its Summer Group Exhibition “IKIGAI” at Basement Ginza in Tokyo.

Ikigai is a Japanese concept that means “a reason for being.” The word “Ikigai” is usually used to indicate the source of value in one’s life or the things that make one’s life worthwhile. The word translated to English roughly means “thing that you live for” or “the reason for which you wake up in the morning.” Each individual’s ikigai is personal to them and specific to their lives, values and beliefs.

In a jam packed venue, D*Face, ONEQ, Martin Whatson, Hua Tunan, Cloakwork presented a new series of works never shown before in Japan and Asia.
