Anyone like Manga?
For students of all ages, there is a free Manga exhibit at the Japan House, here in Los Angeles until March 28, 2019. What is Manga you ask? Manga is the Japanese version of a comic book. It is a blend of art-form and storytelling. For a short time, renowned Manga artist, Noaki Ursawa will be presenting his art on his first tour of North America. He has been published in 20 countries and has sold over 127 million copies. This show does not disappoint and offers a review of his life’s work. It showcases his work such as BETA!!, Yawara!, Monster, 20th Century Boys and Billy Bat (co-creator Takashi Nagasaki). There is also art from his childhood and gives a great glimpse into the development of a budding artist and the results of the inspirations from a true storyteller.
Go check out the show and learn more about Manga and how comics have developed as a source of literature and art from around the world.
