Lilian Martinez: Clay Architecture

Importing beans from Portland’s famed Stumptown Coffee Roasters every week, Daisuke Matsushima’s Paddlers have been caffeinating shoppers at the Nishihara arcade since 2015. The café has a calm wooden interior, communal tables and a homely atmosphere – a little piece of the Rose City in one of the quieter corners of Shibuya. You can now combine your cup of french press coffee or espresso with a little art, as Paddlers serves as host for the first Japan exhibition by LA-based artist Lilian Martinez. Depicting everything from bowls of fruit to basketball games and comic book characters with a comfy touch that echoes Matisse, she'll be showing art in various forms, including illustrations, ceramics, rugs and homeware.
