Hiroki Takeda & Monster Hunter 20th Anniversary Collaboration "The Breath of the Flower Dragon" Exhibition Announces Previously Unpublished Works

(Location: Minato-ku, Tokyo; CEO: Yasushi Iguchi; hereinafter referred to as "TRiCERA"), operator of "TRiCERA ART," one of the largest global art marketplaces in Asia, will hold a collaborative exhibition with contemporary artist Hiroki Takeda, featuring the "Monster Hunter" series. The collaboration exhibition will be held at 9s Gallery by TRiCERA (Nishiazabu, Minato-ku, Tokyo) from March 30 (Saturday) to April 7 (Sunday), 2024. Three of the exhibited works, which have not yet been shown to the public, will be presented at this exhibition.

The "Monster Hunter" series, a hunting action game in which players confront giant monsters in a magnificent natural setting, and Hiroki Takeda, a contemporary artist who creates watercolor paintings that fuse animals with plants and flowers, have collaborated to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Monster Hunter series. The additional collaborations to be unveiled include three of the top-ranked monsters in the Monster General Election: Tigarex, Narugakuruga, and Jin'ouga.

The work is a gorgeous, fantastical piece of artwork that is a fitting celebration of the 20th anniversary, combining Hiroki Takeda's technique of blending brightly colored flowers and plants with animals while maintaining the game world's atmosphere, such as the dynamism of the petals dancing to the roar of the flowers and the ground by drawing the flowers into the shadows.

The original drawings created in this collaboration will be exhibited at the "Urgent Quest: The Breath of the Flower Dragon" exhibition at 9s Gallery by TRiCERA (Nishiazabu, Minato-ku, Tokyo) from March 30 (Sat) to April 7 (Sun), 2024, and will also be available by lottery during the exhibition period on TRiCERA ART The works will also be sold by lottery on the global marketplace TRiCERA ART, which is available in eight languages during the exhibition period.

Whether you like "Monster Hunter" or "contemporary art," this exhibition is sure to be enjoyable for both.
