Gallery Nucleus Publishes Limited Edition Print Set by Artist Junko Mizuno, to Launch at SOL Exhibition in AugustAug 8th 2014
Each print leaves nothing to be desired, as Junko Mizuno's trademark art style is vividly encapsulated within every holiday design. The artist's muted colors fill every illustration from corner to corner and the back side of each print contains an image of the original penciled concept sketch and a description of the holiday being featured. Mizuno takes care to display the exact date of the holiday as well as the Japanese translation of the holiday's name—SOL is every bit a learning experience as it is a wonderful print collection that is perfect for the changing seasons.

About Junko Mizuno
Artist Junko Mizuno is a Japanese manga artist who was born in Tokyo, Japan. Her unique drawing style has been termed Gothic kawaii, or kawaii noir, for its combination of childish cuteness and dark, sometimes terrifying elements. Influenced by shōjo manga works, the bright colorization and characters' large eyes give her artwork a decidedly Japanese popart flair. Mizuno's popular designs span the gamut of the merchandising spectrum, involving everything from prints and tshirts to graphic novel publications and vinyl figurines.
Since October of 2004, Gallery Nucleus has strived to be a welcoming gathering place for the art loving community by offering quality art, artrelated goods, and rarities. Focusing primarily on gallery exhibits, we have also had benefit auctions, product signings, music events, and artist lectures. After three and a half years, we moved one block east to a much larger and more dynamic space. Still in the heart of quaint downtown Alhambra, we reopened in March of 2008 with over 2000 square feet of open gallery space, 1000 square feet of shop/boutique, and over 3000 square feet of studio/production space. Having exhibited both local artists and artists from abroad, and catering to an international customer base, we offer an extensive collection of original contemporary, illustrated, graphic, commercial, and narrative art — all of which are carefully catalogued on our website: www.gallerynucleus.com
