INDIVIDUAL WORK

Away from the congested urban life of Japan and surrounded by mountains in the small town of Onishi (ogre stone) in Gunma prefecture, artists can work free from outside distractions. Shiro Oni Studio’s first priority is to provide each artist with individual studio space to focus on their work.

EXCHANGE OF IDEAS

Shiro Oni Studio was founded with the belief that while artists produce much of their work individually, the development of ideas going into that work benefits from a strong social network.

CONNECTING RURAL JAPAN TO THE REST OF THE WORLD

The town of Onishi is typical of the larger economic and population aeging problems Japan faces. Artists staying at Shiro Oni studio will be bringing diversity and cultural exchange to an area of Japan too often overlooked.
