MY REALITY: CONTEMPORARY ART AND THE CULTURE OF JAPANESE ANIMATION

My Reality is an exhibition of Asian and American artists whose work has been influenced by manga and anime. Manga (the Japanese word for comic books) and anime began to gain popularity after World War II. Osamu Tezuka, the creator of the anime Astro Boy and one of the most influential artists of the first wave of Japanese animators, was so heavily influenced by Disney, so much so that he is called the Walt Disney of Japan.
