  1. From the above i only knew Takada Akemi and Abe Yoshitoshi. Oh, Akemi-sensei is one of my favourites! So smooth lines and dreamy colours! She really carries you to fantasyland. Abe-sensei is unique yet I can’t say I’m very fond of his designs. They emit some particular eeriness, not horror-like, but still eeriness.
    Takada Minae is pretty as well. I found her not as good as Akemi-sensei, though her mermaids are very beautiful indeed.

      1. Under each image I posted, you can find a link to either an artist website or a wiki article. Also I posted the links to their mini-galleries and descriptions on the exhibition website 🙂
