Exhibition of Shinkai Makoto
In the first-ever exhibition featuring an active anime art director, National Art Center, Tokyo introduces the great works of Makoto Shinkai. He is most famous for last year’s worldwide hit, “Your Name”, but Shinkai made his commercial debut over 15 years ago in 2002 with the short film “Voices from a Distant Star”. Since then, he has delighted audiences around the world with his realistic portrayal of human connection and love. This exhibition features an exclusive look at the behind-the-scenes of his work through storyboards, drawings, and objects that were critical to the work process, and Shinkai’s success.
