The Forests in the Little Box
June 4 to August 27, 2022
One and only forest of trees that may never exist in this world, yet you might feel familiar, or maybe saw this in your imagination. The box is only the beginning of the story.
“Skull Imari” is inspired by the Japanese woodblock art, ukiyo-e, by the artist Utagawa Kuniyoshi's" Soma no Kouchi Ura".
Sakai created a very realistic skeleton based on the skeleton diagram of European medical books.
This is also the basis for the appearance of "Gashadokuro" drawn by Shigeru Mizuki. Many of Kuniyoshi's paintings are rough, and most of the original tattoo paintings from the late Edo period show the resemblance of Kuniyoshi's paintings.
