SHOHEI OTOMO – FOOL’S PARADISE – FRIDAY 7th SEPTEMBER
Posted by: KOAN
Backwoods Gallery, is proud to present a visceral and energetic snapshot of modern Japan though the eyes of illustrative genius Shohei Otomo.
Working mostly in ballpoint pen, Shohei Otomo’s insightful depictions of Japan expose both its commercial facade and deepest underground culture.
Delivered with an unmistakable level of biting political analysis and technical perfection, Shohei’s work straddles the worlds of art, graphic design, anime and punk.
Son of the legendary Katsuhiro Otomo the prolific author and illustrator who has shaped so much of Japanese culture with titles such as AKIRA, Shohei’s work takes his fathers legacy into the next generation.
The exhibition by Backwoods Gallery will open on the 7th of September and consists of thirty-eight original pieces and several limited edition prints.
