The Travels of Taiwanese Manga

by on Friday, 30 March 2012 Comments

This month we have a very special treat for you. Currently Taiwanese manga is slowly taking its place in the world stage, and this year marks the first time Taiwanese artists have been represented in their own pavillion in this international exhibition in Angoulême. We have interviewed some of these artists, the most acclaimed in Taiwan, and we will be sharing these interviews with you along with excerpts from their books. We have divided the artists into five articles: Tradition versus Modernity, in which we focus on artists who deal with the complicated relationship between traditional Chinese cultural traditions and modernity, and how they combine these interlocked idenities; Manga and Beyond, where we talk to two artists who are pushing the limits of what is considered manga by combining it with other disciplines; Creative Inspiration, in which we interview various artists about what they do to stay fresh and always have new ideas; Memories of the Local, where we learn about what growing up in Taiwan was like for two of our artists, and how it influenced their style; and finally Returning from Abroad, in which we see Taiwan in different ways, sometimes as a fable, sometimes in a realist style, but always in an original way.
