French Touch: French artists steeped in Japanese culture

French Touch is the best of both world: French artists whose talent unveil their passion for Japan. There are more and more of them and Japan Expo Sud has decided to put them under the spotlight!

Posted on

Among the fans of Japan and Japanese culture who get together at Japan Expo festivals since the beginning, a whole generation of artists and creators have decided to go through their passion, creating works that display a strong Japanese influence as well as their French roots.  

Those French artists steeped in Japanese pop culture, animators, mangaka, or music artists have been featured at Japan Expo Paris two years ago, and now Japan Expo Sud has chosen to put them under the spotlight with the French Touch theme, to make you discover their work. Come meet those creators who share the same passion as yours for Japanese culture, who have found their way into this world, sometimes have left to Japan to work in animation studios for instance.

A dozen guests will be announced as part of the French Touch event, who will share with you their passion and their career path. Come attend their panels and signings to get to know them.
