An open wish for the City.

Erica Ward Solo Exhibition
at CLOUDS ART + COFFEE in Koenji Tokyo
I am excited to announce that I will be holding a solo exhibition in July-August this year. 2020 has been a strange year for everyone, filled with lots of fears and uncertainties. I wanted to channel some positive and protective energy back into this year, and have created a series based on 'engimono,' symbols of celebration and good luck intertwined within the urban environment of an imaginary Tokyo. As we cautiously start venturing back into the city I would love if my paintings of manekineko, tai fish, daruma, omikuji and others can bring a smile and serve as omamori for better days to come.
