I'm really delighted to finally release my collection of Japanese inspired designs of cats in a new collaboration with CASETiFY
Edward Luper talks to Japanese magazine, 365 ART+ on his 36 Views of the BT Tower, cats and future possible art projects.
It was my pleasure to participate in an online exhibition 'What Home Tastes Like' organised by Jenny Lau. The online exhibition explores Asian cuisine from the viewpoints of people's nostalgia and memories. Jenny states that "Edward Luper, whose literal interpretation of the classic Chinese dish ‘Buddha Jumps Over The Wall’ for this exhibition ought to be in a museum”.

In the early 1830s, Katsushika Hokusai created 36 Views of Mt. Fuji. Images from the series would go on to becomes some of the most iconic images Japan has ever produced, their vast reach and influence being almost impossible to measure. And 190 years later, they continue to inspire. The London-based artist Edward Luper grew up looking at one of his city’s landmarks: the BT Tower. And his love and admiration for Japanese prints eventually led him to create an homage to his artist hero Hokusai. “London is my Edo,” says the artist. “And although I don’t have a Mt Fuji, I do have the BT tower.”
