The Workshop Leader
Inko Ai Takita was born in Kyoto, Japan and her passion for manga comics started as a child. After finishing a Masters degree at Kyoto University of Art & Design, she moved to London to study at Central Saint Martin’s College of Art & Design and has been working as a manga artist/ illustrator ever since. She has published several manga books including ‘Tale of Genji manga edition’ (Tuttle), ‘Manga Yokai Stories: Ghostly Tales from Japan’ (Tuttle) and the comic ‘Portrait of Violence’, which won a bronze medal at the Independent Publisher Book Awards in 2018. Her work has been included in numerous exhibitions and publications and she regularly runs workshops and delivers talks in schools, galleries and museums. Collaborative projects include the ‘Underground Heroes’ project with David Blandy in which 19 manga posters were created and displayed in the London Embankment Underground station.
