Hisashi Tenmyouya


[Media: Website]

I spent this morning gazing at Hisashi Tenmyouya's beautiful artwork, which utilizes traditional Japanese styles and imagery, merged with modernized references and ideas. The result is immediately engaging, and makes you think when you see images of historical Japanese gangs posing next to American-styled lowriders.

The paintings also have a great sense of motion, wit and criticism. My only wish is that the images hosted here were larger, I'd love to see some of the smaller details.
