At DENIS TOKYO, at the flagship store "DENIS MADE IN TOKYO" in Miyashita Park, a commercial facility in Shibuya Ward, original works drawn by artist "mikimikimikky1016." The exhibition "Thank You" will be held from Saturday, March 13, 2021 to Sunday, May 9, 2021.
The title, “Thank You,” contains the wish that DENIS TOKYO will prepare your hair style and feelings, and that you will be able to express your gratitude to your loved ones during this time of the corona crisis.
By adding flowers to the animals, I hope that people who see this work will feel a little more calm and bright.
During the event, we will be selling canvas-based acrylic paintings, as well as posters and postcards. Please take this opportunity to visit "DENIS MADE IN TOKYO".
