While studying art history in college, I often wondered if professional artists really wear scarves in galleries. If they are Yoshitaka Amano, they do!

The artist is showing his fine work at Shibuya gallery Art Statements Tokyo until next January. This is the first time these pieces are being shown at an exhibition in Japan. Amano worked as the lead character and graphic art designer for the Final Fantasy series until Final Fantasy VI. Since then he has stayed busy with various projects, game-related and not.

Amano is also currently beginning work on a 3D anime called Zan, his first feature film.
