One hundred and five contemporary illustrations by famed “eshi,” Japanese comic artists, will be showcased at the exhibit “Eshi 100” in Ho Chi Minh City starting tomorrow.

The event, to run at HCMC Exhibit House, 92 Le Thanh Ton, District 1, from March 8 to 16, promises to appeal to local fans of Japanese comics, or “manga.”

The paintings are all original works created with unique techniques and boasting fine details.

On display will be works by celebrated “eshi” including Noizi Ito, Carnelian, Kaishaku, and Akira Caskabe.

The exhibit, held on a yearly basis, has drawn thousands of visitors, both adults and children alike, in Taiwan and Hong Kong.
