This painitng by a Taiwanese artists began as a dog’s face but has now morphed into a cake with whipped cream! http://twitpic.com/4dqlew

This artist left a message in her painting! “From the world to Japan”

Peg has really thrown herself into her work.

Here’s how things looked Friday night as we prepared for posters to be signed. We pressed until 3 am but in the end, there was not enough desk space and we could only get 500 done. We will hold another signing session next week.

We’re now near the end of our #newday_GEISAI charity event!  Thank you to everyone in Taiwan! http://twitpic.com/4dujss

Everyone has now begun to paint with complete freedom! Yes!

We want to thank everyone who came despite the rain. Some people even came by bullet train from surrounding cities. Such great friendship from the Taiwanese!

What’s this? It’s Monday and Peg is still working. She was supposed to have finished on Sunday but has decided to keep painting until it’s time to leave for her flight!

Chinatsu Ban has revised her work a countless number of times, letting forth a tidal wave of slumbering emotions. She took advantage of every minute available before her flight. Luckily the airport was nearby. http://twitpic.com/4e1ffz

A look at how the wall of works made on-site grew and grew. http://twitpic.com/4e1fvd

And here’s another one. Once again we’d like to thank the people of Taiwan. Such shy demeanor and yet such warm hearts!

Another 40 sets and we will officially be sold out… amazing. All of us are grateful for the generosity shown by the people of Taiwan for Japan. http://twitpic.com/4d1o6w Sophie actually broke her shoulder just days previous, after a nasty fall. But even then, she’s taken no time off! We are all grateful for her hard work.

Live painting by Taiwanese artists has just begun!

New Day Charity Event @ Kaikai Kiki Gallery Taipei – The Night Before

From March 25-27, Kaikai Kiki held a New Day charity event at our gallery in Taiwan. With the blessing of the artists involved, the event featured installations composed of printouts of the works contributed for the project, live painting, and more. We also sold charity posters, raising 13.5 million Taiwanese dollars (approx $450,000 US). Net proceeds will be donated to charities supporting the recovery effort in Japan. Below is a photo report from the event, compiled from Twitter tweets:

Saga-san from Over Drive chipped in to help create the installations. http://twitpic.com/4cqr4n

GEISAI Executive Committee staff Kaseno-kan busies himself with the final preparations for the next day’s opening. This photo was taken just before sending out a mass mail asking everyone’s permission to use their works. “Sorry for the rush, but, the event was organized on very short notice…” http://twitpic.com/4cqrsr

Artists Chinatsu Ban and PEG (Keiko Moritsugu)  agreed to hold live painting performances. You can read Ban’s blog (in Japanese) here. http://twitpic.com/4crozj

2:30 AM Taiwan time. The press preview is scheduled to being at 10 AM. The public opening will take place in the evening. http://twitpic.com/4cuhw1
