Akira Yamaguchi seems to be a rather popular artist in Japan. At least, I saw his work in more than one place. His work borrows a lot from traditional Japanese artwork. Yet, he updates it to make it feel more contemporary. For example, the above artwork incorporates parts of Roppongi Hills, a town near Tokyo. As I have mentioned before, I love when artist takes landscapes and architecture and make it more playful and interesting. I also like the color palette Yamaguchi uses. It is muted, but it does not seem dull. To see more of his work, check out this book.
