Guam will hold its first Manga artist Exhibition from Thursday, February 9 to March 31, 2023, featuring Japan Manga Artist Tsunogai from Tokyo. Grand Plaza Hotel, in collaboration with Travel Gallery, Pacific Island Holidays, and the Guam Visitors Bureau, has brought Japanese Manga Artist Tsunogai to exhibit his Guam-inspired artworks for tourists and residents to enjoy.
Tsunogai is an illustrator for one of the largest and most iconic art studios in Japan and has penned manga designs for three decades. His booming freelance works grace the covers of CD jackets for various artists, shirts, souvenirs, goods, and event art. Tsunogai first fell in love with Guam as a child during his family vacations and has since become an annual visitor. Drawn by the island’s scenic beauty and culture, his manga illustrations feature tropical and summer-related creations that continue to grow in popularity. Tsunogai is devoted to showcasing Guam and will continue to share our island through his manga designs locally, in Japan, and globally..
Manga is a Japanese art form from 1814 that has evolved into storytelling through cartoons, comics, and graphic novels. Manga’s popularity has crossed borders from Japan to Korea and worldwide, providing Guam with the opportunity to cultivate manga culture on the island and spur interest and travel from Manga followers in our main tourist markets of Japan and Korea. The Tsunogai Exhibition opens the door for marketing opportunities for Guam within the manga world.
The Tsunogai Exhibition is located on the first floor of the Grand Plaza Hotel in Tumon. The public is invited to visit the free Tsunogai Exhibition daily from noon to 7:00 PM starting Thursday, February 9,to Friday, March 31, 2023.
