Japanese Rice Paddy Art Festival


We’ve all heard of urban art, but this is rural art. Art that takes place in farm fields of rice paddy’s in Japan. The Japanese Rice Paddy Art Festival is a fairly low-key art festival that has submissions from all over Japan to showcase a large crop of rice paddy designs. Farmers just design these for themselves and send the pictures in, where there is a small following for this type of art in Japan. Designed by carefully organizing colours of rice plants to create a large scale picture is no easy task, but the Japanese have been doing things for decades that have fascinated the Western Hemisphere.

  • My question is, do they harvest these fields? Gotta love new media for art.
