Tenmyouya Hisashi, previously featured on our blog, revives the style of Japanese traditional painting in his contemporary images of futuristic vehicles and robotic warriors on gold leaf. His work is a combination of what is called, “Neo-Nihonga”, a revival of Japanese aesthetic with his own term, “Butouha”, referring to the attitude and resistance against the art system that his art expresses. Well established in Japan, among Tenmyouya’s fans are artist duo known as “indieguerillas”, who incorporate Japanese folklore-inspired beings into their mixed media work; paintings and sculptures of skateboards and other imaginary machines ridden by colorful  characters.
