California Gallery to Host Junko Mizuno Art Exhibition in August
posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The Gallery Nucleus in the Los Angeles suburb of Alhambra announced that it will be displaying Junko Mizuno's Cinderalla manga art in an exhibition to be held from August 6 to August 29. Gallery Nucleus describes Cinderalla as "a mindwarping revision of the classic fairy tale, complete with flying zombies and anemic pop stars, told with a touch of black humor."
All 120 pages of the story will be on display, and art prints will be available for fans to purchase. The gallery will also host a contest for the exhibition, with prizes chosen by Mizuno herself. Viz Media released the Cinderalla manga in 2002.
Mizuno is well known for her gothic/kawaii noir style, which is a combination of themes that are both humorous and tragic. Mizuno is also an accomplished author, publishing numerous books such as Cinderalla, and Princess Mermaid. Her artwork has been exhibited at galleries in New York, Seattle, Toronto, Tokyo, and Paris.
This is not the first time Mizuno's art has appeared at Gallery Nucleus; her works appeared at the same gallery in November 2010 and October 2007. In September 2010, Mizuno appeared in San Francisco to sign autographs.
