From late July until late August, the Nara Tsutaya bookstore will be hosting an exhibition of works from Tokushima-born illustrator Hiroshi Nagai (1947-). After commencing his career as a graphic designer, Nagai has been active in the illustration world since 1976. He specializes in tropical-styled landscape illustrations, which have been used for numerous purposes - particularly in the realm of album cover design for different musical artists.
This exhibition will showcase a range of Nagai's tropical themed works, which give off the vibe of an endless summer. A number of his original drawings will even be available for purchase during the event.
Nara Tsutaya is located approximately 10 minutes on foot from Shin-Omiya Station, served by the Kintetsu Nara line, or around 15 minutes walk from Nara Station, served by the Nara Line, the Sakurai Line, and the Kansai Main Line.
For those who opt to drive, the venue is around 10 minutes from the Kizugawa IC exit of the Kyonawa Expressway.
