Matzu x The Standard

Snow Globes by Tomokazu Matsuyama from The Standard Hotel on Vimeo.

Tomokazu Matsuyama and The Standard Shop have come together to create this limited edition snow globe based on the artist's work:

"Tomokazu Matsuyama’s work is both wild and controlled, figurative, yet abstract, steeped in Japanese iconography – both ancient and contemporary – but also specifically American, cowboys and indians, bucking broncos, and Jackson Pollock. We saw this and thought … let’s make snow globes together. And thus it was born, a unique edition of 30, 8” tall glass and wood snow globes, handmade with acrylics submerged in water, the uniquely Western souvenir as seen through the Japanese born, California bred, New York based, former snowboard professional turned painter and sculptor, Matsuyama."

This excerpt, as well as a full interview with Matsuyama, is available on The Standard's website.

Please enjoy these photos from the release party at The Standard Shop, as well as some shots from the reception at Le Bain. Photos courtesy Arrested Motion.
