Tokyo Lights

Personal work, 2020

My ongoing work on the perception of the urban landscape through memory (fragmented, subjective & personal) led me to a drawing strictly based on the neon signs, storefronts and typography from the streets of my beloved (and sorely missed) Tokyo.

180 x 48 cm | 71 x 19 in

Drawn mostly from the neighbourhoods of Shinjuku, Kabuki-chō, Shibuya, Shimokitazawa, Ikebukuro & Ginza. Plus a little homage to Shuetsu Sato (a subway security guard) and its handmade temporary signage.
