Artist ALI SABET recently went to Tokyo and did something quite interesting. Here’s the story in Ali’s own words:
“Before I left to Tokyo my Airbnb host messaged me from Canada asking me to paint something little on his walls. In exchange, he would refund my stay and I would be able to call his place my own whenever I visited Tokyo. I was truly honored. So I left a little love behind!
I paint with Japanese Brushes and Sumi Ink most often. So painting on the walls of this incredible and tiny home in Shibuya, Tokyo was a dream. Being able to use traditional Japanese mediums on the walls worked perfectly. Eric, The owner of the space has become a friend since and I’m so grateful I got to create and leave a piece of me in Tokyo – a place that I’d like to call my second home someday!”
