The Draemon Exhibition Tokyo 2017

arrowPerhaps the most famous and cherished of Japans iconic Manga heroes, Doraemon is being brought to life by a large collection of artists this year in a
wonderful exhibition on now.
Twenty-eight artists and groups will bring their talents and enthusiasm for the character, his adventures and his good deeds along with his unintended trouble making with the theme, eCreate Your Own Original Doraemonf. Doraemon is a robotic cat that came back from the future to assist a young unlucky boy named Nobita Nobi. Sent by his Great-Great- Grandson in the hope of improving his own life prospects and those of the family lineage, the cat has as part of his gift, a special 4th dimensional pocket. The contents of which include a eBamboo-Copterf a head device that allows flight, and the imaginative eAnywhere Doorf which allows travel of the user tocanywhere! Of course, there are many other colourful gadgets inside that are often applied to help the boy but sometimes other outcomes occur.
It is very interesting to see how the well-established artists portray the character and adventures through their own expressions and with their admiration of the work as fans. It wouldnft be surprising to hear that you went home from the exhibition and started drawing yourself. Enjoy creations from Junko Koike, Akira Yamaguchi, Nozomi Watanabe, Tomoyoshi Sakamoto, RenaRena and many more and bring your open heart along as you participate in the ongoing endearing story of the earless cat.
Why is Doraemon earless you ask? Well, unfortunately Robo Mice ate them early on and the trauma of the event has created a fear of mice that comes up occasionally. During his birth, he was also struck by lightning and this caused a screw to be lost meaning there would be some challenge in studying and socializing. Perhaps this helps the bond with his bullied young friend. His favourite food is Dorayaki, which is a bean paste filled bun. He can eat a lot and actually got into the Guiness Book of Records one time.
Doraemon is an ongoing creation with movies coming out annually including 2017. Here, the artists will be sharing memories and impressions through unique creations as Art and Doraemon come together. Join in and reflect upon the enjoyable and easy to relate to imagination of original writer and illustrator Fujiko F Fujio who began the story line in 1969 as it is depicted by todays fresh talent in loving and skillful ways.
