An exhibit of murals that symbolize the Ginza Sony Park Project

Floor B1/Basement 1 featured murals by artist SHUN SUDO expressing the concept of the Ginza Sony Park Project from the opening of the original Sony Building in 1966 to the Ginza Sony Park and on to the vertical expanse of the new future building. These dynamic murals illustrated the neighborhood of Ginza and its enduring appeal to so many people both past and present. Adorned with a multitude of flowers, Ginza was expressed with an atmosphere that almost felt as if light, uplifting music was playing in the background. Within this atmosphere, Ginza was depicted meticulously and vivaciously from the perspective of an artist who had been closely familiar with the neighborhood since he was a child.

Ginza is a place that has always been close to my heart. When Ginza Sony Park was created, I was also drawn to this intriguing park in the center of Ginza, and I have been a frequent visitor. When I was approached with the offer to depict Ginza on these walls however I want, I was extremely happy but at the same time I also felt a huge sense of responsibility. There are definitely many people out there who have emotional attachment to Ginza and the Sony Building just like I do. My feeling was that I needed to paint something here that these people consider suitable for their beloved neighborhood. I chose flowers and music as the motif. There are people and buildings, but also beautiful flowers blooming and uplifting music reverberating in the same space. That is what Ginza feels like to me, and Ginza Sony Park is right in the middle of it. It will make me tremendously happy if my artwork here can bring a smile to the faces of people who have loved this neighborhood since the old days, as well as people visiting from all over Japan and the world.
