I Create Ukiyo-E Art Posters With Famous Video Game Characters
I created my first ukiyo-e samurai Mario “Hunting Season” back in 2009, which went viral online. Since then I have been adding ukiyo-e style into many of my artworks and I was also commissioned by WWE to create artwork for their magazine.
This year, I’m starting a new ukiyo-e series based on popular movie, animation and gaming.
Based on ice climber, a classic NES video game developed by Nintendo during the winter of 1984. “Hammering your way in game is possible but probably its not going to work in real life. Terror is out there in reality.”
Inspired and based on characters from Golden Axe, a video game released in 1989 by Sega. This is an unknown battle of the heroes with the skeleton from the character selection.
