MASUMURA Hiroshi Exhibition Featuring the Works of Hokusai

MASUMURA Hiroshi is Japanese Manga artist. He has long developed his own fantasy world through his comic series Atagoal. In the comics, the trouble caused by Hideyoshi leads to new discoveries being shared with the world.
The joy of these illustrations came from seeing Atagoal characters like Hideyoshi integrated into the spectacular scenes drawn by Hokusai, and yet these are no mere parodies of Hokusai’s works produced by simply replacing the people in them with Atagoal characters. Rather, MASUMURA has provided commentary for each one of these illustrations, explaining the thoughts and processes involved in incorporating Atagoal elements, as well as his opinions and commentary on the original works by Hokusai, including his respect and awe from working so closely with these prints. As a result, this exhibition comprises both art and commentary, making it, in a sense, a research project on Hokusai’s work.
