Yesterday Tomio Nitto went to the David Cronenberg EVOLUTION Show at the TIFF Bell Lightbox. Tomio is not only a big fan of Mr. Cronenberg’s work, he has had the great pleasure of doing work for him. Tomio created artworks for both movies ‘The Fly’ and ‘Madama Butterfly’. Tomio was delighted to have the original artworks signed by Mr. Cronenberg.
