SF – Miyazaki Tribute Art Show

Press Release:

Spoke Art is proud to present the Miyazaki Art Show – a whimsical showcase of over fifty artists from around the world celebrating the films of Japanese film-maker and animator Hayao Miyazaki. Taking inspiration from the Studio Ghibli director’s classic films such as My Neighbor Totoro, Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke, Howl’s Moving Castle, Kiki’s Delivery Service, and Ponyo to his lesser known work like The Wind Rises and Mr. Dough and the Egg Princess, each artist has created unique works inspired by Miyazaki’s imaginative universe.

Including a diverse array of original painting, sculpture and limited edition prints, the Miyazaki Art Show offers each artists’ perspective and interpretation of beloved characters and themes throughout Miyazaki’s films. Imbued with the legendary director’s sense of adventure, deep reverence for nature and strong female characters, this dynamic exhibition is not to be missed.

Please join us for the Miyazaki Art Show, opening Saturday, February 4th, with an opening night reception from 6pm-9pm. Attendees dressed as their favorite Miyazaki character will get priority access to the event and some artists will be in attendance. The exhibition will be on view through Saturday, February 25th, 2017.
