Shaun in Shibuya is part of a global project, in collaboration with Aardman Studios, to raise money for children through art. In 2016 thirty unique Shauns were designed by some of Japan’s leading creators, including Sanrio, Jun Ichihara and Ito Yoichi, as well as special Shauns designed by Nick Park and Peter Lord of Aardman studios in the UK.
Klein Dytham architecture designed Sushi Shaun, to create a humorous and fun take on the world-famous Japanese soul food.
Sushi Shaun was auctioned off on Sunday March 5th at Daikanyama T-SITE for a whopping ¥420,000! The money will be donated to the Japanese Red Cross Medical Center and Shibuya City Council of Social Welfare and used for Japanese children.
