The World Can Always Use More Art Based On The Films Of Hayao Miyazaki

Every frame of every film Hayao Miyazaki has ever made is a work of art. So it’s no surprise that so many people love to pay tribute to his films.

The latest retrospective inspired by the legendary director takes place in Los Angeles this week. The San Francisco-based art gallery Spoke Art is coming down the coast for the “Miyazaki in Los Angeles Tribute Show”, running August 17-19 at the Building Bridges Art Exchange in Santa Monica, California.

Over 130 artists from around the world have made art in all mediums paying tribute to Miyazaki’s films, such as My Neighbour Totoro, Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away, Kiki’s Delivery Service and Howl’s Moving Castle. Here are a few pieces to give you an idea of the scope and beauty in the show, starting with these four pieces.
