Concrete Manga Bench Collection in HITACHITAGA

The development of Graphic Concrete technology has enabled artists to draw delicate images on concrete today. For KENPOKU ART 2016, Miki Yamamoto incorporates this technology for her work presented at the Hitachi-Taga shopping street. Based on her visit of the street, Yamamoto started drawing a four-panel manga, using images that associate with Hitachi city, such as cormorant. Her different illustrations will be displayed on benches at five bus stops on the Hitachi-Taga shopping street. Visitors are invited to “read” her comic-book benches.
