There are many problems like an avalanche occurs after entering this century, from natural disasters, global warming, war, food problems to energy problems.
No one knows these problems are going to be resolved soon.As symbolic monuments of problems mentioned above, there are some abandoned huts slanted by the disaster damages in Kitakagaya area, Osaka.
Bored Rude Kids thought like this, "Why don't we paint and tag on huts? It would be a great idea and just brighten up our day"
"Also hang some pictures inside the huts. Don't need any luxury wallpaper. Let's paint the walls like wallpaper by ourself!"
With flexible toughness and desire to have fun, Rude Kids created a couple of tiny and humble huts called "Hut Trick".

Artist Profile

artists for streetsummit 2023 Dotmasters & Hisamura Taku

UK artist, started painting on the streets of Brighton in the early ’90s. He takes a sideways look at a populist media with a typically English sense of humour. His work is impeccably detailed – his half-tone work, stark black and white street pieces and unique, photo-real colour stencils all create street-based illusions that fool the eye. Invited to take part in Banksy’s ‘Cans Festival’ and featuring in the Oscar-nominated ‘Exit Through the Gift Shop’, The Dotmaster exhibits internationally.
A driving force behind the Nuart festival in Norway, he has collaborated with grass roots activists, luxury brands, Glastonbury festival, weirdos, developers and drop outs. There is NO subculture ONLY subversion.
Work has been shown at the Cabaret Voltaire, CH, ICA, UK, kunstnernes Hus, NO, Museum of modern art Gulbenkian foundation, PT and London Underground.

Hisamura Taku
Born in Tokyo, 1977. In 2003, inspired by a lecture at Todo School, which I happened to listen to, he began presenting his work. From handmade to DIY craft, I actively choose techniques and materials that are considered to be on the periphery of art, and produces works that are barely viable through the art system, while changing them with a reductive ways.
Recent major solo exhibitions include: “Homemade Sculpture” (AI KOWADA GALLERY, Tokyo, 2016), “Repeat Play”(NADiff Window Gallery, Tokyo, 2020), “One Point Sculptures”(GALLERY ROOM•A, Tokyo, 2021), “One Point Sculptures”(SOMSOC GALLERY, Tokyo, 2022).
