KURI Yoji [Japan]


KURI Yoji has a global reputation as an animator, but he started out as a cartoonist. At age 88 he revisited his manga roots with a fresh sensibility in this 500-plus-page work. Ranging from his trademark single-frame manga to his first-ever full-length piece, KURI’s endless font of ideas all pulse with a satirical spirit that penetrates to the heart of the human condition.
