Full Story
Details as follows:

Seiichi Hayashi is an award-winning multi-disciplinary artist. After beginning his career as an animator at Toei Studios in 1962, Hayashi became a leading figure in the vibrant avant-garde cultural scene of late 1960s and early 1970s Tokyo. As a regular contributor to the legendary alternative manga magazine Garo, Hayashi became renowned for pioneering new territory in the medium of comics, with stories ranging from allegorical critiques of postwar Americanisation and the Vietnam War, to touching reflections on motherhood inspired by Japanese woodblock prints and pop music. Hayashi is perhaps best known for his graphic novel masterpiece Red Coloured Elegy (Sekishoku Erejii, 1970-71) and his distinctive character designs for Lotte Koume (Little Plum) candy drops, which debuted in 1974. His images of a young girl in kimono still remain on the sweet's packaging today.

The Japan Foundation is delighted to host Seiichi Hayashi for this special event, exploring the significance of Hayashi's achievements and introduce his multi-faceted work to a UK audience. In conversation with art historian Ryan Holmberg, who will begin with an introduction to the counterculture of the 1960s, Hayashi will speak about his comics, animation, and illustration work, as well as his central participation in this most innovative and turbulent era of postwar Japanese history. The event will be a rare opportunity to hear a Japanese artistic legend speak about his life and work.

This event is free to attend but booking is essential. To reserve a place, please e-mail your name and the title of the event you would like to attend to event@jpf.org.uk.

This event is co-organised with Sainsbury Institute for the Study of Japanese Arts and Cultures.
