I went to a Japanese colouring art of Kiichi Tsutaya exhibition opening in Chelsea. Kiichi’s nurie were extremely popular in Japan from 1945 - 1965 and have continued to be treasured by the Japanese, even after almost 50 years, as their favourite nurie. My mom grew up with his nurie art and I also remember seeing them when I was little. It was super kawaii and sexy!

Their popularity can be attributed to the nostalgia for the fashion and lifestyle of that era that is skilfully depicted in the exquisite contours of the Japanese-style brush strokes and in the distinct sense of balance between the nurie and the blank space on the paper, as well as the originality of the art that depicts ubiquitous beauty through the unique faces, expressions and mannerisms of these adorable little girls that transcend time, making Kiichi’s coloring pictures the most beautiful Nurie in the world. concept of kawaii, or cuteness. - artlog
