Artist Statement →
Following my stay in Kyoto in 2015, I did a lot of brush and ink drawings about the clash of Zen-like silence and popular Japanese pop-culture imagery. Out of this came a silkscreen edition of my ZENZILLA, where I tried to combine the 2 topics. I also did a graphic novel based on these drawings, loosely inspired by the life of famed Japanese special-effects master Eiji Tsuburaya. The book is called Das Ritual.
