About Tokyo BnA

The Bed & Art Project (BnA) was born out of the simple desire to make creative works from Japan’s vibrant art communities more accessible to a global audience.

[Problem statement] 1. Japan is home to extremely creative and talented art communities, yet they remain scattered and hidden away, making their art virtually inaccessible to visitors.

2. Purchasing art and owning art has never been a big part of Japanese culture. Making a living as an artist in Japan is extremely difficult and very rare.

[What is BnA?] In February of 2015, we developed our first project, BnA Ikebukuro, in Tokyo with the concept of “a gallery you can stay in” to create a place for visitors to live and breath Tokyo's vibrant art culture.

The profit is shared to the participating artists, so local artists get to display their work to the global audience while making a continuous income.

With BnA Ikebukuro’s immediate success, we felt Kyoto, the heart of Japanese culture, would be a great second step for us.

In contrast to the urban-centric concept of BnA Tokyo, BnA Kyoto focuses on the intersection of tradition and modern art.

In the same way as our project in Tokyo, part of the profit will be shared to the participating artists, and to a BnA fund that will be used to further promote local artists’ work in the future.
