Gaudi and Inoue takehiko exhibition / ガウディ×井上雄彦展


I saw the exhibition of Gaudi and Inoue yesterday. Inoue is a famous cartoonist in Japan and he was an auther of SLAM DUNK.
It is a popular comic in Asia.

You may know about Gaudi.


This exhibition expresses Gaudi’s creativity through Inoue’s cartoon. It is an interesting attempt in exhibition.

Cartoon is popular in Japan. But most people recognize the cartoon is just an entertainment.

Inoue has been showed us a cartoon has possible to become an Art.

In my opinion, the cartoone has potent tool of communication.
Thus designer will be able to learn how we tell things to people’s heart from cartoon.


By the way, I visited Barcelona 2 times when I was 20 and 22 years old.

I enjoyed Gudi’s architecture. And I understood that what things influenced to gaudi when I visited the Montserrat.


I hope I will have opportunity to go back to Barcelona again.I’ve been studying Spanish.Thus I could enjoy more than before. :)


Isson Tanaka / Japanese inspiration art


I have been impressed with Japanese Art. Especially I like old Japanese painter such as “Hokusai” and “Zyakuchu”. Not a little I seem to have received their influence .

About 2 years ago , I visited Amami island. There was a beautiful sea and great nature I’ve ever seen.

I had opportunity to visit museum of Isson Tanaka there. I had never heard his name before I visited there. He was a Japanese painter socalled “Nihonga”. He had great skill of painting.

you can see his works here.

He moved to Amami island when he was 50 years old. And he painted a nature and birds there. These painting were great. But unfortunately he was not succeed during his life.

After he died, TV show introduced his painting. Then people got know how much he was great painter.

If you have opportunity to visit Amami island , I recommend to go to this museum of Isson Tanaka.
