Fêtes et Légendes à Kyoto

Fêtes et Légendes à Kyoto published by Éditions Nomades in 2013

My first book! 

I made a series of paintings in the traditional Japanese painting technique ‘Nihonga’ which I learned during my studies at Osaka Seikei University in Japan. 

The scene is set in Kyoto and the story takes you on a journey across the seasons which are so celebrated in Japan. As the pages unfold, you will see a few mysterious legends appear here and there which guide you through the seasons from the end of Winter and back. 

Do you recognise some of these legends?
