COSMIC WONDER is a conceptual project comprising various modes of expression from clothing, artwork and publishing to performance, founded by the contemporary artist, Yukinori Maeda, in 1997. The “Center for COSMIC WONDER”, located in Minami Aoyama, Tokyo, functions as a site for activities and presentations.
In 2016 COSMIC WONDER moved its studio to a traditional house and workshop in Miyama, a remote village in the mountains north of Kyoto, which is designated as a national preservation district of historic buildings.
