The illustration exhibition of Natsuko Shuwari appears at Idéal Coffee & Bake, Toyama. Enjoy the resonance with the space design by her husband.
The illustration exhibition of Natsuko Shuwari, On The Table, will come on the scene from June 20th to 25th at the chic cafe, Idéal Coffee & Bake, in Minamidamachi, Toyama City.
The theme of the exhibition is lovely things on the table. Focusing on the shapes and colors that deeply connect to the local climate, the pictures drawn with crayons appear in the cafe. They feature the beloved belongings of Natsuko and the sundries in the drinking establishment where the exhibition is to open.
The artist, Natsuko Shuwari, graduated from the Japanese-style painting course at Osaka University of Arts and currently lives in Toyama, where her husband was born. She recently painted the official poster for Sukiyaki Meets the World 2023.
Natsuko’s husband is an architect, Satoshi Shuwari. In the design, he expressed the chic atmosphere and softness of the owner, Mikiko Shimazaki. Natsuko Shuwari will exhibit illustrations that resonate with the owner’s personality and the space design.
The Idéal Coffee & Bake has large doors that can fully open. You can savor a pleasant time with a cup of coffee while feeling the air of arriving summer.
(Comments from the editorial members: Her name reminded me of the official poster for Sukiyaki Meets the World 2023 at Nanto City, Toyama; the illustration is impressive and lovely. I want to watch the works. Takei, the Web development director of Hokuroku
The other day, I had coffee with the editor-in-chief of Hokuroku here. The interior design of the cafe is loving. It’s a cafe I often love to visit. Akashi, producer of Hokuroku)
(Comment from a guest: Her illustration, Meets the World Beat, has become the main visual for the world music festival, Sukiyaki Meets the World, held this August in Nanto City, Toyama. We’re so glad we can publicize “sukiyaki” this year with the illustration painted by the local artist. Domestic and international people have evaluated it as a stunning illustration. Her works are warm yet dynamic enough to catch our eyes. We like to see her work at the event: Secretariat of Sukiyaki Meets the World Executive Committee)
