“These hand-drawn pieces offer meticulous artificial wonderlands.” Financial Times
“A show full of glittering, neon-lit cityscapes.” Time Out
This is the UK’s first exhibition of architectural backdrops from classic anime films.
Over 100 technical drawings and watercolour illustrations depict fictional future worlds, inspired by Asia’s real story of ruthless urban development.
The exhibition features artwork from some of the most influential productions in the genre’s 1990s heyday, including Production I.G’s work for Ghost in the Shell, which has defined the style of anime we think of as typical today.
