A Pokémon-Inspired Art Exhibition Is Coming to LA This Summer

This summer, a special Pokémon-inspired art collection, called Pokémon × Kogei, is set to open up in Los Angeles. The collaboration between The Pokémon Company and LA’s Japan House brings together more than 70 pieces of art crafted by 20 talented artists, showcasing their skills in various mediums such as lacquer, ceramics, textiles, metalwork, and more. The exhibition aims to highlight the art of craftsmanship rather than traditional drawings and paintings, offering a unique perspective on the beloved pocket monsters.

Divided into three sections, the collection offers a diverse range of Pokémon-themed artwork. The “Stories” section focuses on Pikachu, featuring the highly anticipated “Pikachu Forest” piece—an installation consisting of over 900 strands of lace suspended from the ceiling, creating an enchanting forest filled with electrifying yellow rodents. The “Appearance” section showcases artwork centered around Eevee and its various evolutions, including Jolteon, Vaporeon, and Flareon. The final section, titled “Life,” presents a diverse mix of different Pokémon creations.

Running for a full five months — from July 25 to January — the exhibition will be open to the public at Japan House, offering free admission and welcoming visitors seven days a week. Additionally, Japan House has hinted at hosting events related to the exhibition, although specifics have yet to be announced.
