This summer, you’ll be able to get up close and personal with works of art featured in and inspired by Blue Period. Not only that, but the exhibition has tapped up-and-coming artists from art prep schools across Japan to create its key visuals.


Blue Period Exhibition -Art is a gift?- debuted six key visuals, each based on a manga cover. The art collages are comprised of individual works from 34 art students across multiple media including charcoal, pencil, and oil paint:

The in-person exhibition will let Blue Period fans enjoy 50 works of art integral to the series, as well as immersive theater and art commentary harkening back to the story and the journey of its protagonist. There will also be a digital tie-in, with special videos and virtual exhibits.


Blue Period Exhibition -Art is a gift?- will run from June 18 to September 27 at Tokyo’s Warehouse TERRADA G1 Building.
