Let Out Your Exceptionality



Disabilities.
Within the spectrum exists variants of personalities.

Rich sensitivities, intricate dexterity, bold ideas, r
efined attentiveness and more.

Not “typical”.
Which in turn, brings possibilities to life.

We aim to transcend borders by the names of prejudice
and common sense that divide this world.
By delivering diverse “exceptionalities”
to society in different mediums,
we aspire to create a new culture around welfare.

HERALBONY is
an art life brand from Iwate
that aims to create
a new culture with artists
from welfare institutions all over Japan.

ARTISTS

Disability is not a deficiency, but can be a paintbrush.

Always watch the same programme at the same time every day.

Recite a few pleasant phrases over and over.
"Characteristics turn into paintbrushes" when their characteristics appear on the work, repeated in the life.

Enjoy the unique work
painted by artists with disabilities

ART BRUT

「The word Art Brut」was invented by a French painter, Jean Debuffet (1901-1985)and describe works of art produced in contexts that are not related to existing art or cultural trends. Also translated as 'raw art', it is known in English as 'outsider art'.

It is an art form in which people without artistic training express themselves according to their own inner impulses, and many original works have been appreciated, including those by people with intellectual or mental disabilities and by psychics.

Japanese Art Brut work is highly regarded overseas, and exhibitions have been held at the Art Brut Collection (Lausanne, Switzerland), the world-renowned headquarters of Art Brut, and the Musée de l'Art St Pierre (Paris, France).


OUR LOGO

The brand's name, HERALBONY, /span>
is an unfamiliar word that Shota Matsuda, the older brother of both representatives,
7who has autism and intellectual disabilities, wrote in his free book when he was seven years old.

The word may not mean anything to the world,
but to my brother at the age of seven,
I think he wrote "heralbony" because it meant something to him.

The brand name "HERALBONY" means that
we want to take a seemingly meaningless idea
and create value for the world.

There are countless people involved in the making of every item of clothing.
That's why we want our products to be a part of people's lives

family.
