Shun Kawakami, CEO of artless Inc. and art director/artist, was invited to be one of the main artists

of Salon des Beaux Arts 2017, where his work will be on display at the Louvre Museum.


Salon des Beaux Arts is a festival of the arts held every year at the Louvre Museum, organized by

the Société nationale des beaux-arts, a French art group with a rich history going back 150 years.

More than 600 artists from across the globe representing the contemporary art scene; from painters,

sculptors, printmakers, photographers, to illustrators, gather to exhibit their work, wherein select

artists in each discipline are given awards for their exemplary works. Many artists from Japan,

including calligraphers Sisyu and Suito Nakatsuka, have in the past received the esteemed award.

This year the festival will be held from December 7th to the 10th at the Les Salles du Carrousel

in the Louvre Museum, and the award ceremony will be held on the 9th.

The work on display “In Praise of Shadows” by Shun Kawakami is made in collaboration with Tokyo

and London based video art group seven shuffle (Tomohiro Ishioka & MATIJA SUHADOLC).

Utilizing the temporal and spatial nature of the medium and the three-dimensional effect of the

manifold timelines (passage) and spatial perversion of the moving image, the work through lights

and shadows redefines and recognizes the “unique aesthetics of Japan”.

Having been awarded with one of the world’s top three advertising awards, the Cannes Lions

International Festival of Creativity (Cannes, France), as well as NY ADC, One Show, D&AD,

and iF: International Forum Design Hanover, Shun Kawakami is poised to bring his unique

aesthetic vision to Salon des Beaux Arts.
