Woospace Artist: Sush Machida Gaikotsu
Sush is heavily influenced by the 19 th century wood cuts of Utagawa Kuniyoshi - for their eccentric imagery and humor. His work also integrates elements from the last 20 years of Pop culture, such as tattoo, extreme sports, skate and snowboarding graphics, high-fashion, computer imaging, etc. Blending traditional Japanese attitudes of image making and slick technologies of contemporary painting, the artist has made a body of work he defines as a super clean sublime .
All I know is these are slick, cool, and really gorgeous...
