I’d only ever seen a handful of works by the late Tiger Tateishi before, so it’s great to see a few more here, even though the images are a bit small.

Edgar Martins, another of their featured artists, was the subject of a memorable MeFi thread a few years ago.

The UKAWA Naohiro stuff is hilarious. Love his DJs.

Thanks for this. The abiding otaku influence in Japanese contemporary art never fails to make my day.
