Shin + Nao = The <3 Movement!!
LOVE MOVEMENT is an art show using vinyl toys to deliver universal messages about love. After reflecting on the lack of love in the world, recently married artists, Shin Tanaka and Nao Shimojo, sent blank versions of their character toys to over 50 other artists around the world, including some who are also couples. The artists were asked to customize the toys with their designs and be part of the LOVE MOVEMENT. Each artist's interpretation is different from the next. So far we have ruminations on procreation, war and space travel...
Love should be everywhere in our daily life.
Because Love is invisible, and we can’t touch it or buy it, we usually pass over it.
Modern society lacks Love due to a lack of communication.
If I want Love from someone, and I don’t give the person Love, it’s unfair. It’s wrong just requiring Love from someone.
If you start giving Love to people around you, Love will be everywhere, and we can live happily.
If the world were to embrace the Love Movement, it would solve many problems we have.
Many creators put their Love into this exhibition. Please feel their Love.
Giving Love will bring even bigger Love back to you.
We can spread Love. That is the Love Movement.
