NEWSText: mariko takei

The Joy of Toy―UK/JP Character World” Exhibit will be held at the center for creative communications (CCC) in Shizuoka from April 2nd. Both Japanese character art and Western style street art have come to influence each other while becoming popular all over the world. And the personification and deformation of characters as icons has become an important part of visual communication. For the Joy of Toy exhibition , 8 artists will present works in 2D & 3D illlustration, figures, painting as well as animation. And only as character artists can do, they will present a unique world of ideas―an imaginarium―and explore the role of character design in contemporary visual communications.
