Exhibition of Manga and Anime Art by Osamu Tezuka

@ Phoenix Art Space, 10-14 Waterloo Pl, Brighton BN2 9NB

Wednesday 6th-Sunday 10th April.


Osamu Tezuka (1928-1989) is known as the Godfather of Manga and the Walt Disney of Japan. He is the most influential manga artist and animator of all time.


Tezuka defined the cinematic language and visual style of Japanese comic art. Every Japanese animator and cartoonist that followed remains in his debt, as evidenced in the huge Disney-style eyes still seen on manga characters today. Tezuka was also a pioneer in animation. His company was the first to find an audience in the West, with hit cartoons such as Astro Boy.


Tezuka produced over 150,000 pages of comics in his lifetime and created enduring stories for children such as Princess Knight and Kimba the White Lion (later “reimagined” as the Lion King by Disney). Tezuka also wrote the adult manga Black Jack and won the Eisner Award for his masterpiece on the life of Buddha. He was a technically brilliant artist in his own right, and this exhibition showcases his line-work and composition through a selection of enlarged copies of individual comic pages.


This exhibition is organised by the children’s literacy charity, Upside Comics, to help raise awareness of Tezuka’s life and work.


There will be workshops on making your own comic for children and young people aged 10 and up (parents are asked to stay and join in).


  • Friday 8th @ 2pm.
  • Saturday 9th @ 2pm.
  • Sunday 10th @ 2pm.
