Spreading fear and mayhem in the visual arts.

Franz von Bayros & Alphonse Inoue at Vanilla Gallery, Tokyo

Endless thanks to BibliOdyssey and Journey Around My Skull for trying to spread the word about Art Nerd on Twitter and Dana for commenting - trust me, you have no idea how much it means and you'll have a place in my heart until the end of times.

With my knowledge of Japanese being sadly close to nada, I'm not sure I got all the information about this Ex Libris exhibition at Vanilla Gallery in Tokyo right and I do believe that it actually closes today, i.e. has already closed by the time I post this, so please do correct me if certain details are wrong and the show is still running.

What I think I did gather is that works by Franz von Bayros (top) and Alphonse Inoue (bottom) are/were on show and that alone is epic enough to grab my attention.
