Akihiro Nishino's Picture Book Illustration Exhibition in Otogi-machi Biennale
ITOCHU AOYAMA ART SQUARE has decided to support the diverse work of Akihiro Nishino, who brings a breath of fresh air to the art industry, from the perspective of fostering a future generation.
We will host the largest solo exhibition of the work of Akihiro Nishino (a member of the manzai comedian duo King Kong, of the Yoshimoto Creative Agency) called “Akihiro Nishino’s Picture Book Illustration Exhibition in Otogi-machi Biennale.” The exhibit will display a compilation of picture book illustrations that have appeared in all of his exhibitions, held nationwide, so far. The exhibition is expected to be a creative festival over the summer vacation period as a starting point for his Otogi-machi town-building initiatives.
Akihiro Nishino’s Picture Book Illustration Exhibition in Otogi-machi Biennale
Akihiro Nishino’s solo exhibition of a collection of fine all-black picture book illustrations drawn with a 0.03 mm pen was held in New York, and now traveling around the country in Japan by volunteers.
The exhibition at ITOCHU AOYAMA ART SQUARE will be the largest collection with approximately 150 pieces, showing Akihiro Nishino’s world from the past in chronological order, while also exhibiting his new works.
Akihiro Nishino has created three picture books. His unique world of fantasy is reflected in Otogi-machi.
The creators and performers selected by Akihiro Nishino himself will liven up Otogi-machi together with Nishino.
