The Bustercall Project is an official art project licensed by Shueisha. It contains a variety of artistic works about One Piece created by artists from around the globe.[4] The artists and art pieces are featured on an official Instagram page.[5]

The project has been organized into an art exhibition at three different venues. At the first two venues, ComplexCon Long Beach and Innersect Shanghai in 2019, the exhibition was called Bustercall Art Gallery.[1] For the third venue at Asobuild in 2020, it was renamed to Bustercall = One Piece Exhibition (BUSTERCALL=ONE PIECE展?).[3]

Information

The project was initially presented as unofficial, with the organizers giving an anynonymous interview to KAI-YOU where they claimed that it was run by fan volunteers.[6] However, it was later revealed to be an official project planned by the editorial department of Weekly Shonen Jump. In an apology and explanation posted on the official Shonen Jump website, the team explained that they presented the project as unofficial in order to encourage artists to create art without constraints.[7]
