Japanese Notebooks. A cameo of Igort’s illustrations for the Stefano Cardu Siamese Art Museum is the exhibition that Across Asia Film Festival dedicates, through a tribute, to one of the Sardinian artists who has most rigorously explored the Far East and in particular Japanese culture. Cartoonist and artist active since the ’70s, Igort (Igor Tuveri) was the first Westerner to draw a manga in Japan, which he published in all the most prestigious Italian and international magazines. Nourished by long stays in Japan and in the countries of the former Soviet Union, he has developed an expressive style that combines the peculiarities of the graphic novel, of which he is an acknowledged master, and of graphic journalism, becoming one of the most original voices on the international art scene.
