“Ukiyo-e” is the name of the japanese woodblock prints created by
artists such as Hokusai, Utamaro or Hiroshige, admired by countless western
artists of the beggining of the 20 th century.
“pictures of the floating world”, they represent that period’s daily life
images, highlighting its hedonistic and sensual aspects.
This series of digital
prints are inspired of them, making a free interpretation of its literal
meaning: depicting characters floating in an unreal world.
These illustrations were selected in the 2008 INJUVE Illustration Contest, and exhibited between 2008 and 2010 in the FIAP Cultural Center in Paris, in the Château de la Chesnaie in Beauchamp, in the Epitanime Convention in Paris, in the 15th Barcelona Manga Convention and in the Studio Banana in Madrid
