“Fusion of Bonsai and AI Art” - Bonsai producer Teppei Kojima takes on a new challenge, with the phrase of “Tradition is the sum of innovations” in mind.
    TRADMAN'S BONSAI NFT is a digital art project launched as “a challenge to maximize the potential of bonsai” by combining images of actual bonsai created by TRADMAN'S BONSAI and keywords selected by Teppei Kojima himself.
    The project plans to release three types of artworks: “Super Rare,” “Rare,” and “Standard.” “Super Rare” will consist of moving images and music, “Rare” will consist of still images and music, and “Standard” will be a series of still images.
    For “Super Rare” and “Rare”, special music was created for each piece by musicians whom Teppei Kojima trusts and loves.
    With the phrase of “Tradition is the sum of innovations” in mind, Teppei Kojima continues to explore new possibilities for bonsai, and is taking on the challenge of sublimating the traditional culture of bonsai into a digital form, and presenting a new bonsai culture for the next generation.





    With a mission to share the traditional Japanese culture of bonsai with the world, he formed TRADMAN'S BONSAI in 2015 (and later established Matsubaya Co., Ltd. in 2016). In addition to collaborating with apparel select shops, high-end brands, car dealers, etc., he has been delivering the unprecedented world of bonsai to a wide range of people, including young people, on a daily basis, preserving tradition while transcending conventional concepts.

    Teppei Kojima


    He spent his childhood in Matsuba-cho, Kashiwa City, Chiba Prefecture, and graduated from Matsuba Junior High School in Kashiwa City. After being captivated by music, fashion, tattoos, and other street culture as a student, he became active in the apparel industry as a buyer. While going abroad to buy, he realized the beauty of Japanese culture and was fascinated by the depth of history and beauty of "bonsai". In 2015, he formed TRADMAN'S BONSAI, and in 2016, he established Matsubaya Co.

    He has been working with various brands and artists such as "shu uemura," "NIKE," "Dior," and "RIMOWA" to create a space with "bonsai" with his one-of-a-kind view of the world.

    With "Tradition is the sum of innovations" in mind, he is transmitting the coolness of Japan to men, women, and the world through bonsai.
