Josef Paleček "Orginal Children's Book Illustrations"
This event has ended.
The Czech Republic's recent entry into the European Union has prompted a re-evaluation of Czech culture. With the "Fantastic! Czech Animation Festival", Logos Gallery has introduced Czech picture books and animation that were not previously known in Japan.
It is said that the first picture book was made in Czechoslovakia, and there are a great number of picture books produced there today. In areas of political repression, artists felt a strong desire to show children a bright future. Among those artists is Josef Paleček, who has illustrated many books with his colorful and dreamlike work.
This exhibition includes original paintings from the Paleček's most recent work as well as many vintage illustrations. An artist talk and book signing will also be held at the gallery on December 1st from 1 p.m.
