When I say art in this context, I mean painting, pottery, those types of mediums specifically. There’s anime that deal with a lot of different arts forms and their impact on people but I can’t think of any about these specific mediums I’ve mentioned.
I tried to research if there’s any, and the only two I really found were Honey and Clover and Gallery Fake.
Honey and Clover was written and illustrated by Chica Umino, and adapted by J.C.Staff in two seasons from April to September 2005 and June to September 2006. The story follows Yuta Takemoto, Takumi Mayama and Shinobu Morita – students at an art college in Tokyo living in the same apartment complex – and their love triangles, unrequited love, graduating from college, finding jobs and learning about themselves.
Gallery Fake was written and illustrated by Fujihiko Hosono, and adapted by TV Tokyo in 2005. The plot revolves around the owner of an art gallery called ‘Gallery Fake,’ who’s an art dealer selling authentic and fake paintings. However, the owner has a strong sense of justice and goes out of his way to help others.
Obviously, Blue Period is also an anime involving art that has been recently released – however I am still in the process of watching it at the time of writing this post so no spoilers please!
Do you know any anime about art? Would you recommend them?
