Make Your Pet Famous - Rachien Smoothie, Japan.
The "Make Your Pet Famous" exhibitions planned and curated by our founder, Rose Hill, featuring pet portraits and murals, is a celebration of the human-animal bond. This exhibition, held in Japan in May 2019, showcased an 8 x 3 metre mural containing 7 individual artworks. The unique aspect of this exhibition is that it involved pet owners in the creative process, giving them a voice and allowing them to be a part of creating a one-of-a-kind piece of British Pop Art.
The pets depicted in the exhibition include both rescue animals and those who have since passed away. The artwork serves as a tribute to these beloved pets and provides a way to channel feelings of grief and boost self-esteem. The art also has the power to bring joy and bring people together, as evidenced by the smiling faces and conversations among strangers at the exhibitions.
“She is so talented and a hard worker towards her job! She never forgets to smile even if she is on a tight schedule. Her artwork makes people so happy and I'm one of them and I am a big fan of Rose Hill! Her exhibition held at Rachien Smoothie in Japan was successful and everyone there was filled with happiness, kindness, and a smile! She and I will never forget about the night! Not only her artwork but also her personality attract them a lot! She is the best!”
