Manga Art: A Journey in Hyper-Contemporary Pop (Italian:  Manga Art: Viaggio nell'iper-pop contemporaneo)

Comics, manga, anime- The world of comics and animation, traditional American and Japanese, is at the forefront for international artists whose iconic characters are a sort of evolution from Warhol, who sought out models and movie stars as his chosen muses of ink and color. More and more, artists illustrate their idea of beauty or simply their sense of the time we are living in an aesthetic derived from comic strips and graphic novels, giving this two-dimensional genre a "divine" realism. The artists in this book have exhibited in museums and galleries around the world a triumph of works inspired by the manga universe.
