SHOHEI OTOMO at BACKWOODS GALLERY from Alexander Mitchell on Vimeo.

Working mostly in ballpoint pen, Shohei Otomo’s insightful depictions of Japan expose both 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, graphic design, anime and punk. Son of the legendary Katsuhiro Otomo the prolific author and illustrator who has shaped so much of Japanese culture with titles such as AKIRA,Shohei’s work takes his fathers legacy into the next generation. This video was shot during Shohie Otomo’s exhibition at stay Backwoods Gallery in 2012.
