Silencio, Tokyo

Lugares hechos de silencio – Places made out of silence – is a mural in Tokyo commissioned by Design Festa Gallery in Harajuku, the creative heart of the city. The artwork is a typographic reflection of my time in Japan.

Their culture and the metropolis made me think about how places have a unique kind of silence that differentiates them from any other. And the silence and tranquility that I found there was particularly fascinating in contrast with its non-stop pace and conspicuous consumerism.

During the trip, the Teddy invasion spread out through Tokyo, see photos of the streets bellow.
