Inspired by airvase, Takehiko Inoue tried “guriguri” scribbling with ink.
This is a paper bowl that envelopes air. It is possible to create various shapes by pulling it in different directions. The paper is thin and light, but when expanded it is rigid and strong enough to stand alone.
We have depicted a unique world view by arranging works of art created by mangaka Takehiko Inoue for the airvase.
Enjoy the energy of brush strokes and changes of color in three dimensions.
TAKEHIKO INOUE Mangaka（Manga Artist）
A manga artist whose representative works include “Slam Dunk,” which sold more than 100 million copies in Japan, and the currently running “Real” and “Vagabond” series. He is the recipient of numerous awards, including the Agency for Cultural Affairs’ Art Encouragement Prize for New Artists and the Tezuka Osamu Cultural Prize (Grand Prize). His transcendent endeavors – including the “Inoue Takehiko Final Manga Exhibition” that utilized an entire museum and the production of the folding screen painting “Shinran” for the Shinshu Otani-ha Higashi Honganji Temple – have also struck a deep response.
