Rebirth: Artist Manabu Ikeda Unveils a Monumental Pen & Ink Drawing Nearly 3.5 Years in the Making

You can read the story about the the reason why Manabu painted this enormous canvas after the tsunami in Japan here.


  1. Very beautiful - and very Japanese Thelma.

  2. I put it up for LS, the subject matter is of course frenetic, but it is like a beautiful painting that would adorn the Sistine Chapel, a record of a historical moment in time. In the last Vimeo video as the last panel is hung Manabu breaks down and cries, the tensions must have been unbearable.
