ARTIST SERIES SS14 SHIBUYA
MARVEL X SHIBUYA
ARTIST CO-LAB SERIES
Citing influences such as Hip Hop culture, graffiti and classic Anime and Manga animations, featuring super robots, Shibuya has evolved a style with a distinctly urban, sci-fi, mechanical feel. Rendered with straight interwoven lines, that cascade across the surface, his subjects are transformed to resemble computer circuitry or components of a engine.From tigers to stag beetles, perfect symmetry is found in Shibuya’s many animal graphics and portraits.
His purely abstract works explore the raw elements of his forms where the imagination attempts to navigate indecipherable mazes and non landscapes, while a poetic fusion between technology and nature informs the content of his more figurative works.
