As a creator of video games, anime characters, illustrations and graphic designs, Yoshitaka Amano is regarded as a source of inspiration for artists such as Mariko Mori, Takasha Murakami and Yoshitomo Nara.

The exhibition, called Deva-Loka, takes its name from a colourful 7 meters painting inhabited by psychedelic figures. Smaller aluminium panels singles out fantastic monsters and characters, and mid-sized paintings feature close-ups of imperturbable heroes, grim warriors and delicate heroines.
