This is the first large-scale exhibition of a picture book artist Shinsuke Yoshitake. In addition to original illustrations for his first book It Might Be an Apple (2013), the exhibition showcases an enormous number of original illustrations he drew over the years, as well as three-dimensional works he created as a student. The exhibits also include objects created for this exhibition by Yoshitake, who has already been active as an illustrator and a plastic artist. We hope visitors will enjoy exploring the Yoshitake's world where familiar fragments of everyday life are depicted in a very humorous manner.
