Yukio Takeda, Keiko Sena
Keiko Sena has long explored the possibilities of harie (pasted paper) in her work as a picture book and kamishibai artist. The simplicity of her illustrations lends itself perfectly to this work. Thanks also to the vivid colors, both the friendship between a horse and some mice and the feeling of urgency when a fire breaks out spread quickly to audience members. The simple beauty of the kamishibai wraps children and adults alike in a feeling of warmth.
