Popular manga artist Okazaki Kyoko rose to fame in the 80s with her own style of harder-edged “Girl’s manga,” often depicting sex, drugs, murder and more. Perhaps best known for 2003’s Helter Skelter which was made into a hit film in 2012, directed by Mika Ninagawa (who, coincidentally also has a solo exhibition this month—check the events calendar) and stars Erika Sawajiri. This first major exploration of the artist’s work features drawings and illustrations from throughout her career illustrating the lives and desires of modern city-living women.
