this past weekend was kinfolk magazine's gatherings, which happen globally during the same time. locations include amsterdam - netherlands, astoria - oregon, auckland - new zealand, barcelona - spain, brooklyn - new york, camp wandawega, ghent - belgium, istanbul - turkey, madrid - spain, mexico city - mexico, nashville - tennesee, ojai - california, seoul - korea, sydney - australia, tauranga - new zealand, vancouver - british colombia, beijing - china, berlin - germany, lisbon - portuga, london - england and mashiko - japan. 

i was invited by tina minami dhingra to collaborate with the mashiko - japan gatherings to create visuals for the event. after discussing the concept, "a messy meal — embracing wabi-sabi in the everyday", four exclusive paintings and a table notecard was designed. although i wasn't able to physically be at the event, the creators of the gathering had such amazing energies in what they did, i couldn't refuse the opportunity to take part. 

some of the photos shared here are from those who were involved in the event and everything looks amazing. thank you for the invitation to be a part of such a special moment, tina.
