The "God of the Wind" who flies down with the east wind to proclaim the coming of spring, and the "God of Thunder" who melts the frozen clouds with claps of thunder. These two Gods that deified natural phenomena with fearful-looking demon figures have been loved by the Japanese people since antiquity, sometimes humorously, and sometimes as objects of awe.
In this Art Colors exhibition, called “Iron Brutes”, the great God of Wind and God of Thunder who are given life in the form of iron by the artist Mikuo Konoki, welcome everybody who visits the hotel with their clownish, captivating gestures. In the lounge on the 25th Floor, the exhibition venue, many works full of the joy of life - just right for spring - are on display, and run around innocently and playfully just like children. In this balmy season like the warming of water, we hope you enjoy this art exhibition at the Park Hotel Tokyo that is sure to bring solace to the human heart
