New Works by Shohei

by Nastia VoynovskayaPosted on

Since we featured him in Hi-Fructose Vol.20, Japanese artist Shohei has been creating new drawings that carry a commanding, almost Orwelian authority. Rendered solely in ballpoint pen, the new works use imagery from currency and uniforms to allude to a dystopian vision of order — twisted by a surrealist’s imagination, of course. Shohei’s style is bold and crisp as we saw in his previous work, but the new works go further in developing an aesthetic that is as austere as it is loud and in-your-face. Take a look at these recent works by Shohei.
