TOKYO WEEKENDER

KAWANABE KYOSAI: THE ART, THE HUMOR, THE HORROR

BY MALENE WAGNER 

Kyosai Kawanabe is perhaps the most fascinating and unique artist of the Meiji Era (1867-1912) in the transition from old to new Japan. A master creator of both the natural and supernatural world, he was drawn to both the humorous and horrible, which followed him from an early age.

The Japan Society

British Museum Citi Manga Exhibition

BY MALENE WAGNER 

Although still considered somewhat foreign and exotic by many of us in the West, some aspects of Japanese culture have been adopted into mainstream Western culture – just think of sushi, sake and sakura. With this exhibition, the largest one on manga held outside of Japan to date, British Museum shows that manga too has a place in modern-day Western (pop) culture.
