Konami Set to Launch Yu-Gi-Oh! Art Show


Konami Cross Media NY and the pop culture arthouse Gallery1988 are bringing a Yu-Gi-Oh! tribute art show to New York City, beginning tomorrow, October 3.

The limited time event will run until October 6 during New York Comic Con. It will be showcased in a nearby gallery a few blocks from the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center. Admission is free.

After launching the experiential event in Los Angeles at Anime Expo earlier this year, Konami and Gallery1988 will feature six new commissioned works of immersive and visually stunning pieces inspired by the Yu-Gi-Oh! franchise creator, Kazuki Takahashi. Also on display will be more than 60 Yu-Gi-Oh! inspired pieces of art that were first on display at the Los Angeles event. A highlight of this show will be the opportunity to see the four pieces created by Kazuki Takahashi which originally debuted during the Los Angeles in July.

On the night of Friday, October 4, artists Dan Mumford and Anthony Petrie will be in attendance and available for signings, personally showcasing their new Yu-Gi-Oh! designs.

The afternoon of Saturday, October 5, a number of Yu-Gi-Oh! voice actors are scheduled to attend the exhibit and will be available for autograph signings. This includes Dan Green (Yugi/Yami Yugi), Darren Dunstan (Maximillian Pegasus), Erica Schroeder (Dark Magician Girl) and Jake Paque (Playmaker, Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS).

Also on tap, there will be new limited edition prints, pins, posters and a T-shirt based on designs from the show. Each day, the first 100 attendees will receive a free button.
