Museum of Mom’s Art Autographed by Kyoichi Tsuzuki & newly photographed instax included


Is mom art a big blow to small intellects?

It's everywhere, no one respects it, the creator himself doesn't think of it as art at all, and he can't sell or buy it, but he often receives it, and even when he does, he's not very happy about it. . A bright shock of no-brow, neither high-brow nor low-brow. It's neither a concept nor a rebellion, but the pure joy of moving your hands that will make you smile and tear up. Contains over 350 pieces of such "Okan Art" in all colors. The ultimate collection of Okan art works, including work gloves dolls, ribbon dolls, origami handicrafts, and flyer baskets that are both cute, nostalgic, and new⁉, as well as introductions and interviews with charismatic Okan artists.

As a limited benefit for Ken Elephant EC sales, in addition to a book autographed by Mr. Tsuzuki, we will randomly include a black-and-white instax photo of a "slightly creepy" Okan art photographed by Mr. Tsuzuki. I look forward to seeing what comes with it after it arrives!
