Ikeda Manabu: And her rebirth

When you see Ikeda’s painting “rebirth” you can’t help but think of a child’s dream, with its vibrant colors and hidden mythical creatures that seem to be laughing and playing in the painting. You quickly forget they are drawings because they look alive. And before you realize what it is happening, they (the drawings) invite you to play with them. Lucky me, I visited Ikeda’s exhibition with Nick West from gensojapan.org, who kept me from getting lost in the painting and took amazing photos

Every corner of it (the painting) speaks of innocence, and you can feel it (the innocence) playing around the room like a cheeky little boy looking for attention and cuddles.
