I am heading to Tokyo...does anyone know of any Tokyo galleries that sell posters/prints in the vein of the EB database (Banksy, Hush, Ben Frost, Olly Moss, Shep Fairey, Mr Brainwash etc..etc...) but from local Japanese artists? I'd love to see what the local art scene is like in Japan and maybe pick up a few pieces...google is little help.

Takashi Murakami

He SHRN. I did see a bunch of his murals at local museum a couple years ago. Incredible to see in person even if its not quite my style.

Urban Japan itself is a work of art imo tho. To see feudal shogun era estates next to a Blade Runner cityscape divided by beautiful trees or Mt.Fuji in the background is really a sight to behold.

Enjoy your trip!
