Small-sized works on display

On July 25, Kagoshima-based illustrator Tsubasa Yoshisako’s solo exhibition “Stacking pops: The more pieces, the more pop” opened on the third floor of Gallery POLANNCA in Meizancho, Kagoshima City.

Yoshisako specializes in pop art illustrations. She exhibits approximately 300 works in this exhibition and limited her works to palm-sized, 7.5 cm square including the frame. The walls are lined with small illustrations depicting unique scenes, such as her original rabbit character surfing on a carrot, swimming in draft beer, and roasting marshmallows over a campfire.

Since the small works sold well at her previous shows, she envisioned holding an exhibition with a large number of small illustrations. In preparation for the show, there were days when she would create 10 to 15 pieces a day. Yoshisako keeps a record of the works sold at her past exhibitions, and when she needed inspiration, she said she looked back at the past entries. Some of her works have something in common and have become a series.

Yoshisako added, “This exhibition has a different appeal from the previous ones. I hope visitors will find their favorites.”

The works displayed at the exhibition are available to purchase on site, priced from 2,500 yen per piece. It is open from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. until July 31 (until 5:00 p.m. on the last day). Free admission.
