Vanishing Wave By Devendra Banhart


Following his travels to Japan shortly after the Tohoku earthquake, artist/musician Devendra Banhart produced a series of evocative drawings responding to the natural disaster and its effects on the people of Japan.

Exhibitions of these drawings were shown in Tokyo and Kyoto with the purpose to raise funds to support, the Mother’s Radiation Lab Fukushima, the Tohoku Youth Orchestra, and the Foster Care for Children in Fukushima.

Vanishing Wave is the collection of these ink drawings accompanied by personal texts by Devendra Banhart, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Ryu Takahashi and Yusuke Nagai. A testament to the tide-like characteristics of memory, grief, and pain.
