The seventh in the series of “MOBILE ART WATCH project” is Atsushi Toyama’s.

On this “MOBILE ART WATCH project“, we distribute works through a mobile phone in collaboration with Crypton Future Media. You can download the pieces on the official site of Crypton Future Media with a mobile phone of Au or SoftBank (only in Japan), and use them as a watch on your phone. Atsushi Toyama‘s drawings are simple and powerful, and humorous and heartwarming that attract everyone’s attention these days.


He created these 3 works: “Ringo Star” with his love devoted to Ringo (shown above), “Kuru Kuru Owl”, owl’s twirling eyes ticking, and “Full of Hands”.

“Through creating these works I’ve got an opportunity to rethink how you use limited time effectively.” says Atsushi Toyama. Please download and enjoy his mobileart watch.

From September 3rd to 29th, Atsushi Toyama Solo Exhibiton will be held at mirai garou in Tokyo.
