Thinking of Homeland Japan

Quarto co-organized the Thinking of Homeland charity project to benefit the Japanese Red Cross along with illustrator Saeko. Twenty expat Japanese artists were invited to submit an original artwork based on the theme “Thinking of Homeland” for the project. The complete set of 20 artworks is reproduced by offset lithography in a limited edition of 500 copies.

The sale of “Thinking of Homeland” is helping to raise funds for the restoration efforts in Japan while making art affordable at the same time. It is available to order at the Thinking of Homeland website

The prints are vertical in format, inspired by Japanese hung scrolls (Kakejiku).

They are housed in an elegant wooden box that mirrors the Japanese aesthetic in its simplicity and use of natural materials, and serves as a ready-to-hang frame.

Through an open slot at the top of the frame, the prints can easily be removed and shuffled to change which one is displayed.

Each set contains twenty different prints and represents a variety of media including painting, drawing, photography and installation art.

The next phase of the project will be a travelling exhibition to display the artworks at different locations in the UK and around the world.
