Japanese Pop Art! – Ippei Gyobu (17 Total)


Ippei Gyobu is a Japanese pop artist who’s known for his clean lines and vibrant colors. His long-legged, doe-eyed characters are both sassy and sweet, they have a sexiness about them that’s almost taboo. Gyobu has collaborated with several large companies like Adidas, Dr. Pepper, Microsoft (for Zune) and Sony – his work transcends racial lines, appealing to a global audience.

It doesn’t come as a surprise that he cites Japanese super robot and superhero series of the 70s and 80s as inspirations as well Disney animated movies such as Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, Alice in wonderland, and Dumbo. We love his gorgeous characters!

Gyobu is starring in his first U.S. solo show at the Compound Gallery in Portland Oregon right now, through May 3rd.
