Gendai Aato

I learned a new word watching part of NHK news tonight, gendai aato(現代アート), contemporary art. This first image doesn’t really convey what I saw on the news, as it reflected a fascination with anime and manga or at least that style. Some of it was bizarre and grotesque, some wasn’t. Some of it was “big eyes” which is what my day started with-scanning images from a Japanese coloring book (for my classes), which is where the second image comes from.

Bare monogatari – Jizeru.

At some point, I think my students are going to play with this coloring book.
