Biography

About Shohei Otomo

Working mostly in ballpoint pen, Japanese Art Illustrator Shohei Otomo’s insightful depictions of Japan expose its commercial facade and deepest underground culture. Delivered with an unmistakable level of biting political analysis and technical perfection, Shohei’s work straddles the worlds of art, illustration, anime, and cyber-punk.

Since gaining online global recognition as one of Japan's leading illustrators, Shohei has produced nearly a decade's worth of exhibitions across Paris, Tokyo, Milan, Hong Kong and Melbourne; worked on projects with such names as Google, Agnès B, G-Shock, Carhartt and Sony Playstation.  By recently expanding his art practice into sculpture, Shohei has begun to solidify himself as an important figure in Japanese contemporary art.
