Vol 13: Summer 2013
The Japanese film genre of Tokusatsu has had a major impact in our generation and “The Ultraman Series”. The cover story of this issue is a classic example of this genre.
We also look into the art of miniature modeling. These features include in-depth conversations with various artists from the United States, United Kingdom and Hong Kong piecing together different stories and cultures behind each individual style of the art form.
On the subject of art, we pay a visit to the art studio Kaikai Kiki. In our interview with Takashi Murakami, one of the most influential artists of our time, we discuss his efforts in cultivating and nurturing the next generation of Japanese artists and the extensive creative process of Kaikai Kiki.
