The Manga Artist Otomo Katsuhiro The Complete Picture Finally Comes to Light.
Otomo Katsuhiro made his debut 39 years ago. His work made such an impact upon the world of manga that a demarcation of “pre-Otomo and post-Otomo” came to designate a turning point in manga history. The power of his work was not only felt within Japan but starting with Europe and America his work has had a strong influence over creatives across the world and has brought many new followers to the world of manga. The live action remake of “AKIRA” still gains much attention in Hollywood, even 20 years after its conclusion in manga series, pointedly revealing the breadth of impact of Otomo’s work and its universality. In this exhibition work is brought together from Otomo’s debut period up to the current day in the first comprehensive exhibition of his original drawings.
