Chisami Tsuchiya’s work combines the beauty of ukiyo-e (japanese wood block prints)with the excitement of modern manga and anime. But by using computers instead of woodblocks, she has made Japanese Prints for the 21st Century. Her beautifully detailed and colourful illustrations draw primarily on Japanese stories and culture, but also on ‘Alice in Wonderland’ which we will be showing here.
We have exhibited some of her work here in the past in the last two UK International Manga Art Show’ we curated, and it was greatly admired by the public.
Her work has started to be published both in the UK and Japan, and there is already an international fan club for her work Chisami Tsuchiya’s work is much more than just illustration though, and each piece is a very beautiful piece of art in its own right.
