This ZOZOVILLA exclusive poster will be available on March 18th at the timing of the grand opening for pre-orders / first come first served for 100 copies with the Edition No.1 to 100, signed by Yukimasa Ida. The art piece “Monkey puzzle” was created in commemoration of the grand opening of ZOZOVILLA.
This art piece is a memorable landscape with the motif of a “Daiki”, a big tree known as the “Monkey Puzzle Tree” in Ida's London studio. "Engraving nature with paint. Creating the world with my art work. Now is the time to confront this world and leave something that can only be created in this moment." With these thoughts in mind, the artist worked his paintbrush to create this piece of art.

Comments from Mr. Ida
In commemoration of the grand opening of ZOZOVILLA, I’ve created a new painting. This piece is a memorable landscape with the motif of a “Daiki”, a big tree known as the monkey puzzle tree. As symbolized by the spreading branches and leaves of this tree, I painted with the hope that this service will reach various people, which could lead to wonderful relationships.
