DESCRIPTION

The show features the work of more than 30 artists tracing the origins of manga, the rise of Japanese Contemporary Art and into how the art forms have influenced artists around the world.

Sugi, the Japanese word for ‘too much,’ represents the extreme characteristics of Japanese manga and anime, which have merged with the American phenomenon of Pop, to become SugiPOP - a blend of Japanese and American contemporary art shaped and defined by over-the-top pop.
