The Lovereading4Kids comment

Satoshi Kitamura’s highly original style is the perfect complement to this story about creativity. Pablo is having trouble thinking of what to paint. He sets off into the countryside for ideas, but it is during his afternoon nap that inspiration finally strikes! His dreams are full of fantastic images of his animal friends, so that when he wakes up he knows just what to paint.

Synopsis

Pablo The Artist by Satoshi Kitamura

Pablo is having trouble with his contribution to his art group's painting exhibition. Nothing seems to be right. His concerned fellow-artists suggest perhaps he would have better joy with a landscape, so he sets off into the country to try to capture a perfect view.

Reviews

Witty, thoughtful and a glorious visual treat. Guardian

About the Author

Satoshi Kitamura

Satoshi Kitamura was born in 1956 in Tokyo. He says that when he was young he read comics and admits that these have had a great influence on his style. He says he was also influenced by anything visual from a tin of sardines to the fine art of the East and the West. He was not trained as an artist, but at the age of 19 began to do commercial work. From 1976-1979 he worked as a commercial artist in Japan, working as an illustrator for adverts and magazines. He moved to London in 1979 and worked mainly at designing greeting cards. He started illustrating for Andersen Press in 1981 after he had an exhibition of his work at the Neal Street Gallery in Covent Garden.
