Popular young Japanese artist Rokkaku Ayako has been acclaimed around the world for her vibrant, colorful paintings, done directly by hand onto cardboard or canvas. This 360° panorama shows locals enjoying Rokkaku’s workshop at the Kunsthal museum in Rotterdam.

Using the Immersive PanoramasThe Rotterdam Kunsthal museum is a wonderful space designed by Rem Koolhaas, one of the Netherlands’ best-known architects. From June 25 to August 21, 2011 the museum hosted a major exhibition of paintings by Rokkaku Ayako. The show was a huge hit with local art lovers. This 360° panoramic view is designed to give you a sense of being right there in the museum. I hope you enjoy the colors and textures of Rokkaku’s paintings.
