street art, graff and japan… some inspiration pt. I

i keep on researching about other artist’s artwork inspired by japanese culture – and new artists from japan. here are a few i found quite interesting.

when flipping through the book street knowledge compiled by king adz:

… a quite interesting book, i liked the work featured on the book cover by uk artist hush

like myself, he is into geishas, kanji, graff, tags, streetart, stencils – the whole lot of all the good things a man must like. for me it’s always interesting to see what other artists are coming up with if they are into the same things. good stuff, mr. hush!

browsing a bit more and also found very good work by another artist called copyright .

he did a collab show together with hush in the brick lane gallery and also seems to be into tattooed asian girls and graff like me… quite easy to like both of them! 😉

last but not least a quick update on the busiest graffiti artist from vienna, mr. nychos.

apparently he painted at the graffiti for japan show in bagnolet. respect!

browsing a bit further i also found the japanese illustrator yumiko kayukawa.
different style but also quite inspiring!

also worth mentioning: lady aiko – one of the founding members of faile .

i’ll keep on posting about about this particular topic – as it is one of my favourite.
more to be updated soon…
