Akihiro Nishino Solo Art Exhibition

Japanese comedian and TV host Akihiro Nishino brings the original artwork from his magical picture books to New York for his first solo exhibition in the city. A member of the Yoshimoto Kogyo comedy duo King Kong, Nishino created the picture books Dr. Ink’s Starry Sky Cinema, Zip and Candy: The Robots’ Christmas, and Music Box World, receiving critical acclaim in Japan.

To hold this special limited viewing at One Art Space, Nishino raised more than $40,000 through a crowd funding website.
