Welcome to the artists side of Kanazawa Underground. Locals like who you see below are a big reason of why I am still in Japan. Enjoy.
We had the pleasure of meeting Shogo recently, and it felt long overdue. A great guy, and a real good photographer. Another great artist from Kanazawa, Japan.
ANOTORINO is a local artist in Kanazawa. He did our cover art for Vol. 4, and we did a full spread on him on this issue of the free paper.
LAMF is a three man crew. Three guys, Doko, Kotaro, and Tatsuya, all met through through the BMX scene, but with interest in street culture and fashion, they wanted to do something different. Starting in 2014, the three of them started making videos and apparel.
Rock. Drink. Repeat. “LIKE EACH OTHER” is a local punk band in Kanazawa. Yusuke on guitar, Ikke on bass, and Shohei on drums. The band has been playing for about 4 years, and live shows are always filled with local fans. “We aren’t hard rock, we aren’t new school hard core, we just have a punk take on different kinds of music. We try to think less about the genre and more about what we can do well together.”
“PROPO” is a 3 man paint team in Kanazawa. The guys, Takuya, Yohei, and Kacchi have been painting together since 2010. All with their own days jobs and background in architecture and design, they paint everything from indoor and outdoor murals to live paint at clubs in their free time.
