The World of Masayuki Miyata

“Born in Tokyo in 1926, Masayuki Miyata (d. 1997) was a gracious, modest, gentleman of exceptional talent. Receiving no formal art training, his natural artistic ability led him into employment as a drafting technician and later as a designer of theatrical posters for the Ernie Pyle Theater in postwar Japan.”
