Originating from the New York graffiti scene, where he was known as “REAS”, artist Todd James (covered here) has become instantly recognizable for his colorful abstract style and erotic sense of humor. You may also know him as the artist who designed logos for the Beastie Boys, or Miley Cyrus’ outlandish backup bear dancers. Some have compared James’ creative style to a child’s for his use of cartoony lines and forms, which he combines with adult subjects. He has described his art as a sort of “horrible cartoon”, influenced by UPA (United Productions of America) animations. His latest solo exhibition “Fly Like the Wind” recently opened on Saturday at Nanzuka Underground gallery in Tokyo.
