Despite the blistering heat and humidity, crowds gathered to witness the live painting performance by Jun Takahashi last night. The two-hour live performance was the center piece for launch of GRACE – The Beginning of The End story book and accompanied by live music from Kan Takagi and Fran Key. During the event’s progression, guests enjoyed other original artworks from the book on display within the exhibition space. Several unique GRACE dolls took up residences at the far corner of the gallery as well. Once with the completion of Takahashi’s work, the party moved up the narrow staircase onto a spacious rooftop, where Fran Key kept the guests entertained with uptempo beats and the latest UNDERCOVER collection visuals as the backdrop.
