LUMINE meets ART - Window Display Art

NY’s budding artist Ricardo Gonzalez’s live painting in Japan

The window displays at Shinjuku LUMINE 2 will showcase art, as part of their LUMINE meets ART initiative. The artistic pieces will be on display for limited periods of time, changing a few times each year. As the first of the series focuses on spreading global art from Shinjuku, overseas artist Ricardo Gonzalez has been invited to Japan to perform live painting. The NY-based artist will take a gradual approach in decorating the window display. Ricardo Gonzalez’s work will also be showcased in elevators of Shinjuku LUMINE 1, with designs based on the company’s theme “New You” and expressing different life experiences.

LUMINE meets ART began in 2010 as the art initiative to promote the company’s “Itsumono LUMINE +α” (everyday LUMINE plus more) concept. It aims to bring art that resonates with customers closer to their everyday lives through showcasing pieces inside LUMINE facilities, while customers enjoy shopping and eating.
