The artist Osamu Kokufu, who had been planning to take part in the 2014 Econo Move eco car race with Ping Cars, has died in an accident at the Aomori Contemporary Art Centre, where his exhibition had just started.
We have therefore canceled the Ping Cars Road Trip 2014.
As well as participating in the eco car race together, PingMag was also planning to publish an article introducing Osamu Kokufu’s rich artistic career.
We are all very shocked at this news that such a bright creative talent has been lost.
The PingMag team offers its condolences to the artist’s family at this time
