Kyoto Gundam Manga Exhibit

yasuhiko-yoshikazu安彦良和原画展

Kyoto's Eki Bijutsukan, a museum located on the seventh floor of the Kyoto Station building in the Isetan Department Store, is currently hosting a wonderful exhibit of manga drawings by Yoshikazu Yasuhiko. He is well-known within Japan; abroad he would be better known for the characters that his work spawned: Gundam.

These are the figures that can be taken apart and rebuilt in many ways.

The 300 drawings and actual figures in the exhibit are stunning. From large canvases, clearly influenced by traditional Japanese folktales, to huge standing figures--an amazing exhibit.

The themes of love and conflict run throughout the works.
