I went to the Osomatsu-San onsen collaboration event. I couldn’t buy any goods because you had to apply in advance and get selected but there was a stamp rally that you got a few things for participating in. Each checkpoint for the rally had part of an original story about searching for Todomatsu’s thingie. The final stamp check point had a short fully voiced drama! The story was something they could never actually show on TV (unless they used a lot of mosaics….) the final stamp illustrates this quite well…. There were also a lot of collaboration foods that came with postcards. I got Karamatsu’s guilt sweets (shaved ice), Todomatsu’s cheese avocado and Todomatsu’s increase your girl power pancake.
Edward Burne-Jones was
artist and designer. While not part of the original circle, he
is closely associated with the Pre-Raphaelite movement, and also the
Arts and Crafts movement alongside William Morris.
early paintings show the heavy inspiration of Dante Gabriel Rossetti,
but by the 1860s Burne-Jones was discovering his own artistic style. In
1877, he was persuaded to show eight oil paintings at the Grosvenor
Gallery (a new rival to the Royal Academy). These included The Beguiling
of Merlin. The timing was right, and he was taken up as a herald and
star of the new Aesthetic Movement.
While well-known as a painter,
Burne-Jones was closely involved in the rejuvenation of the tradition
of stained glass art in Britain, and in addition worked in a variety of
crafts; including designing ceramic tiles, jewellery, tapestries,
mosaics and book illustration, most famously designing woodcuts for the
Kelmscott Press’s Chaucer in 1896.
Stojan Celic was born in 1925. He was a painter, an art critic, professor of Belgrade Academy of Fine Arts and a member of Serbian Academy of Arts and Sciences. Aside of oil paintings, he made prints, drawings, mosaics, tapestries, book illustrations, cover design and stage design.
