Aurélie Mathigot opens a Pop-Up store

When Japan meets Paris, it works wonders.

Playtime Tokyo has just ended and we can’t get enough of Japan! We take this opportunity to invite you to a special event in the heart of Paris, where Japanese art will take up residence as from tomorrow thanks to the French artist Aurélie Mathigot.

We already know Aurélie Mathigot as she was behind one of the three trend spaces' artworks of the last edition of Playtime Paris- the "Shaman" trend space.
Passionate about Japan, she creates objects with patterns borrowed from the Japanese everyday life and landscapes. That is why the Japan Store ISETAN MITSUKOSHI invited her to present a POP-UP STORE, focusing on the cultural bridge between France and Japan.

The POP UP will present the artist's personal work as well as her relationship with Japanese designers as part of her various art collaborations: Soryu Gama, Tokyo Print, Patrick, frankygrow, Otutumi, and Paletscent.

Aurélie Mathigot will also present her collaborations with French brands such as Macon&Lesquoy or Papier Tigre to name of a few.
