A n exhibition of works by UrumaDelvi, who created the popular TV character “Oshirikajiri-mushi,” will be held March 1 to 16 at Parco Factory in Tokyo’s Shibuya.

Oshirikajiri-mushi (“buttock-biting insect”) first hit the airwaves in June last year on an NHK program and became very popular among children and parents. Oshirikajiri-mushi was even nominated as the buzzword of the year for 2007 by the editors of Gendai Yogo no Kisochishiki (Encyclopedia of Comtemporary Words).
