Seven Important Contemporary Japanese Artists

February 12, 2010

The Exhibit hosted by the Accademia Albertina di Belle Arti (January 14-February 14, 2010), features original works by seven important contemporary Japanese artists: ABe Yoshitoshi, Kugatsuhime, Kugatsuhime, Takada Akemi, Takada Minae, Terada Katsuya, Tsukishiro Yûko, Yamada Akihiro.

See other illustrations and read about the artists on Japanese Graphics Exhibitions.


  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.

    • Oh I forgot. please can you find galleries to link us to those artists’ works? Tsukishiro yuuko seems interesting as well.

      • 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🙂

    • Abe and Takada are my favorites from this group🙂

  2. Woah, pretty. I think Kugatsuhime and ABe Yoshitoshi are my favorites.

    • Kugatsuhime has an interesting style with solid even lines, yet her presentation turns out soft due to good use of color🙂

  3. Stunning works! I particularly like the drawings by ABe Yoshitoshi and Terada Katsuya

    • Yes, Katsuya’s works feature interesting designs🙂
