Hayao Miyazaki is, without a doubt, one of the most respected Japanese animation directors of all time. The prolific director, nicknamed “The Japanese Walt Disney”, has spent over 40 years making animated movies, taking on all roles including writer, director, producer, screenwriter, author, and manga artist. In 2002, film critic Roger Ebert suggested that he might be the greatest animated filmmaker in history. In February, over 50 artists will gather for the Miyazaki Art Show in San Francisco.

Spoke Art is proud to present the Miyazaki Art Show – a whimsical showcase of over fifty artists from around the world celebrating the films of Japanese film-maker and animator Hayao Miyazaki. Taking inspiration from the Studio Ghibli director’s classic films such as My Neighbor Totoro, Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke, Howl’s Moving Castle, Kiki’s Delivery Service and Ponyo to his lesser known work like The Wind Rises and Mr. Dough and the Egg Princess, each artist has created unique works inspired by Miyazaki’s imaginative universe.

Including a diverse array of original painting, sculpture and limited edition prints, the Miyazaki Art Show offers each artists’ perspective and interpretation of beloved characters and themes throughout Miyazaki’s films. Imbued with the legendary director’s sense of adventure, deep reverence for nature and strong female characters, this dynamic exhibition is not to be missed.
