About Over the Wall

An Artist Kensuke Miyazaki has completed his wall paintings over the world, such as a Kenyan slum in the past projects. Over the Wall-world mural project seeks for creating his work in a country every year and is aimed at uniting different nations together by means of art, such as a cultural exchange workshop done by the school kids in Japan and the other parts of world.

01World Mural Project

Our project is aimed at creating a wall painting in a new country once a year, in which we complete a cheerful mural together with the local population in the area.
The draft is made in collaboration with the children in Japan, and we try to complete the wall paintings which connect Japan with the rest of the world.

02Cultural exchange program for the kids in Japan and those in the other parts of the world

We arrange art cultural exchange programs for the children in Japan and the local ones. We hold a “What were you doing yesterday?” workshop aiming at facilitating direct communication between the Japanese kids and those living in different parts of the world by means of art.

03Children’s paintings

We bring art supplies from Japan and hold art classes with prizes. After our project is over, Whoop, a brand born from Over the Wall, designs the products featuring the children’s drawings. A part of the proceeds will be distributed back to the local communities, supporting the environment for the kids to continue to work on art in a long term.

About Whoop

Directed by a textile designer Yuko Katsuki, the brand was launched in 2016 aiming at featuring children’s artworks on product design. The drawings made in the art classes will be turned into product packages and graphic design. And the royalty fee will be contributed back to the local schools. We think in this way we can support to create opportunities for them to continue to draw.
