I come across a lot of art through my travels along these tubes better known as the interwebz. Instead of bookmarking and then losing them (because let's face it, I am the destroyer of technology having blitzed through an endless stream of operating systems...hard drives...ah hell, entire computers,) I have decided to post them here instead. Mostly so I can oggle them in the hopes of one day owning an original.
They're creepy, dreamy confections for the eye. After coming across Shimoda's work via my facebook feed - hooray for the Lowbrow Popsurrealist group! - I immediately panned through each gallery of available work. After attempting to decipher Japanese and converting the yen to dollar (I kid you not) I found a piece that will be mine. Oh yes, it will be mine.
I am admittedly determined to snatch one of these pieces up, because, like Charlie Immer before, it's only a matter of time before Shimoda is plastered all over Juxtapoz magazine selling for 3 times as much as right now. Mark my words.
