Hokusai Presents a Riot of Demons (Tokyo) Jun 21, 2022 - Aug 28, 2022

北斎 百鬼見参


Japan has always been a land of folklore and magical spirits, and Japanese demons (or oni/鬼) have long been a part of the cultural landscape. These days, they're found in video games and anime, and back in the day of famous artist Katsushika Hokusai, they were often depicted in ukiyo-e prints and paintings. Head to the Sumida Hokusai Museum this summer to look through the eyes of Edo-era artists, into the world of demons and mythology, and see how demons were seen as the stars of nishiki-e collections like Hyakumonogatari (basically a collection of traditional ghost stories) and other traditional art.
