Manga: The New Generation - Talk by Ken Niimura and Miki Yamamoto

Manga has a deep root in the history of Japanese culture. A medium constantly evolving, Manga reflects the interest of readers as well as creating trends in Japanese society. Lately, there have been stirrings within the artistic world to suggest that the medium is on the verge of a new era of creativity. This change comes in the form of the latest generation of artists who continue to redefine Manga and the result is some of the most experimental and expressive material in decades.

This October, the Japan Foundation welcomes two promising artists, Ken Niimura and Miki Yamamoto, to illustrate their works in this talk event as well as to discuss their influences and new trends within the current world of Manga. It coincides with their first exhibition at the Lakes International Comic Art Festival in Kendal till November 7th, organised in association with the Japan Foundation. Together with Paul Gravett, curator, writer on comics and co-director of Comica.London, they will also explore the diversity and power of Manga and the innovations which young talented Manga artists from Japan may produce.
