About Yoshitaka Amano

Amano was born in 1952 in Shizuoka City, Japan. Always fascinated by drawing, he joined the early Japanese anime movement in 1967, working on character design for a number of Japanese TV programs, including the series Kashaan and Tekkaman.

Some of Amano's masterpieces are deeply rooted in people's heart such as Gatchaman, Honey Bee and The Time Bokan. Amano continues to inspire us with his recent works, such as the world acclaimed Final Fantasy series. Amano has won several prestigious awards including the Seiun Award in 1983 and the Julie Award, Dragon Con Award and the Eisner Award in . He was also nominated that same year for the Hugo Award.

Since 2002, Yoshitaka Amano has slightly put aside his commercial assignments and has focused more on developing his art works. His amazing glossy paintings on aluminum has been exhibited in prestigious museum and galleries worldwide since 1989, including the Orlean Museum of Art in France, Tokyo's Uenonomori Museum, The Angel Orensanz Foundation in New York, MOCA Taipei, Germany's Kunstverein Heilbronn, MOCA Shanghai and the Barbican Centre in London.
