‘Artists in the Americas,’ Art Book Produced by pixiv Features Works by 62 Creators

⁠pixiv, Inc. is partnering with PIE International Inc. To release “Artists in the Americas” to the Japanese domestic market on Friday, March 17, and scheduled for publication internationally in various countries, starting with North America, from the beginning of September 2023. The art book features works by 62 notable creators active in North and South America.

Since 2021, pixiv has worked with publishers in South Korea and Taiwan to produce the “ARTISTS IN” series of art books introducing creators who are active around the world. With the goal of creating a space for making creative activities more enjoyable, pixiv hopes to bring the works of international artists beyond geographical and linguistic barriers and connect creators.

“Artists in the Americas” will focus on works by creators in North and South America that demonstrate a different evolution in styles when compared to Japanese illustration.

In North and South America, there are many illustrators who are pushing boundaries into new forms of expression, influenced by traditional art styles, film, music, animation, games, American-style comics, and many other forms of entertainment. In addition, in recent years, the rise of the Internet has brought the influence of Asian animation (anime), manga and games to creators in the Americas, creating completely new paths of style evolution.

The book will be published in collaboration with PIE International, a noted publisher of art and design books. In order to make the book more accessible around the world, the volume will be published using both Japanese and English, and will be sold in North America and various other regions around the world through PIE International’s international distribution network.

pixiv remains dedicated to its mission to create a space for making creative activities more enjoyable, and will continue to partner with various businesses to launch projects supporting creators around the world.

pixiv is a social networking service for creators, focused on “communication through sharing works”. It launched in September 2007 as a specialized service for presenting and exchanging artistic works (illustrations, manga, and novels), based on the philosophy of “creating a space for making artistic activities more fun.” Currently, pixiv has more than 90 million registered users.
