Yoshitake Amano in SF

I had done a bit of consulting for the newly launched SuperFrog Gallery in SF and they were nice enough to invite me to the private opening and reception for Japanese Pop Artist and illustrator Yoshitake Amano this past weekend.

The SuperFrog is part of an unbelievable new building in Japantown that holds a theater, two levels of Japanese boutiques and the gallery on the top floor. The opening was attended by an interesting mix of several prominent city officials, Harajuku Lolitas and a posse of Amano’s direct from Tokyo.

After the opening we were invited to join the General Consul of Japan at the Japanese Embassy for a reception honoring Amano and the launch of the New People building as part of the revitalization of Japantown. If you are in SF make sure to visit the gallery and New People building…
