Tokyo Comic Con: Noriyoshi Ohrai – The Master of Illustration


The Noriyoshi Ohrai: The Master of Illustration exhibition presents numerous original paintings by the late, legendary Japanese illustrator in a gallery-style setting. While he is unquestionably best known for his striking international poster for the Empire Strikes Back, the exhibit offers a broad selection of his works from Godzilla to swords and beasts fantasy. The exhibit also offered fans a rare first-hand look at Ohrai’s ESB poster study.  We were struck not only by the artist’s accomplishments but also by his candid assessment of his career as a form of manual labor—presenting and interpreting the work of other artists.  The impressive retrospective was co-produced by Tomenosuke’s Shinji Nakako.
