MURAL CITY PROJECT
Started in October 2016, the MURAL CITY PROJECT is a public art initiative introducing local artists and neighborhoods internationally, making Tokyo a landmark destination for street art.
Mural art is still seen as 'defacing of public property' in Japan, making receiving permits to paint extremely difficult. Working with supportive local governments and building owners in the short time MCP has been active the project has produced 4 permanent murals in Koenji with more murals and locations in the pipeline.
Through the Mural City Project we hope to not only inspire the next generation of creators and artists, but also to empower local residence to become social change agents for their communities.
