●INTERVIEW● SUPREME X AKIRA



The fashion brand SUPREME and Katsuhiro Otomo will collaborate in this fall winter collection that features original drawings from the manga AKIRA. Supreme has interviewed Otomo and he has share some insights on the creation of AKIRA. The collection will drop online and at Supreme’s New York, Brooklyn, LA, London and Paris locations November 2, and will hit Japanese stores on November 4. The collection will include T-shirts, pull overs, pants, hats, diverse accesories and skate boards featuring Tetsuo, Kaneda and company.  Today also, AKIRA was released  in the US in a brand new 35th ANNIVERSARY BOX-SET in english language.


Otomo's comments on AKIRA

How I got to do AKIRA is a very long story. I told the publisher I was doing a science fiction story. The publisher opposed but eventually ran my sci-fi piece. It had a good response. When I did Fire Ball I was given 50 pages. 50 pages was far from enough... I wanted to tell that story right and that became AKIRA.

In the story Tetsuo takes drugs. He becomes so self-destructive that he loses himself. Young people go berserk on impulse and eventually destroy themselves. It's about motorcycle gangs, rock musicians and punk rockers. You know how they all die young. I wanted it to be about the marginal members of society. It's society's outsiders, those who don't belong, who are more intriguing to draw.

Like we did, young people today should find their own way. It's not for us to say. They wound't listed to us anyway. That's how it goes.

    ●PRESS CONFERENCE● INSIDE BABEL



    Katsuhiro Otomo and Kosuke Kawamura unveiled today to the media their last collaboration INSIDE BABEL. Asahi Shinbun covers the news with a video of the press conference and a sneak peak inside Otomo's studio.

    ●ILLUSTRATION● INSIDE BABEL




    Katsuhiro Otomo has collaborated with collage artist Kosuke Kawamura  (河村康輔)  in a digital illustration that reinterprets  the classic painting THE TOWER OF BABEL painted by Pieter Brueghel in the year 1568 and exhibited in the Museum BVB, Rotterdam, the Netherlands.

    The digital print that measures 90 × 110.5 cm will be  shown in the upcoming exhibition Collection of Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen Bruegel's "The Tower of Babel"  and the 16th masters - Beyond the Boss  (ボイマンス美術館所蔵 ブリューゲル「バベルの塔」展 16世紀ネーデルラントの至宝 ― ボスを超えて ―) that will take place in the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum (東京都美術館) from April 18, 2017 to July 2, 2017 and in the National Museum of Art (国立国際美術館) from July 18 2017 to October 15, 2017.

    Otomo, who lists Brueghel as one of his favorite painters, decided to reinterpred the painting focusing on the internal structure of the Tower of Babel. Prior to the production, he visited the Boijmans Museum of Art in Rotterdam and planned the idea after exchanging opinions with the museum curators. The coloring of the work was handled by Kosuke Kawamura, a collage artist who has collaborated with Otomo before. They used a digital collage method to synthesize the hand-drawn sketches by Otomo into the original painting and then paste over 20,000 small parts from all over the tower's painting.
