a cyborg-like samurai, admirablely united tradition and today.

山口 晃 / YAMAGUCHI Akira 「百貨店圖 日本橋三越 ed. /50」
Approach to the Shrine” by Japanese artist Akira Yamaguchi. Classically trained in traditional Japanese painting (Yamato-e), he has mastered t, style of the old Japanese masters, creating large-scale, detailed oil and watercolor paintings filled with humorous symbols and cynical jokes that create a complex narrative critiquing history. He appropriates a 17th century style but embeds the works with his own modern, fantastical elements.
