如果大家有留意他的 Instagram 的話,他說在 2018 年 8 月開始整理了一個長長的「平成名單」,並於 2019 年 3 月開始發佈。而 2019 年 5 月 1 日,日本剛轉了新的年號「令和」,意味著「美麗的和諧」。

SHOHEI 的插畫作品的主題一直也和日本傳統文化與時事有相當大的關係。他於名單中寫下了很多他認為平成年代(1989 – 2019)相關事物,當中有時事、政治、娛樂、科技、文化等等,之後就開始了一系列的草稿 ——「平成女神系列」,在少女身上放滿了不同的元素,地台也有細緻設定。作為平成年代的回顧作品,定會令人感概萬分。

整個時代的回顧
整理後把各個小物件試畫出來(win95 lol)
開始了作品的構圖 ——「平成女神系列」
留意她手上的物件在草稿中不停有改動
初音未來的髮型

這張草稿超級喜歡!地台的設定也超細緻,最上的是《EVA》的 AT Field,中間有各個著名的動漫可愛角色,那擠迫的感覺令人想起《AKIRA》醫院那一幕。「昭和」、「平成」、「令和」也有特別設計間字,最後左上的隨筆綾波零超漂亮~

透視線教學~(可見他的基本功超紮實)
最後的地台定案?上方的變了是 Dance Dance Revolution 跳舞機?
另一張插畫的草稿
月野兔的髮型?中間的 Logo 也很搶眼~(右手上有 Pepe)
完成草稿後近日他開始了用原子筆上墨的過程,有時候在 IG 直播~
這是另外一張插畫,看到是高達和日本傳統武士的混合體,不知是不是同一系列的了⋯⋯

於 2017 年他曾在澳洲的 Backwoods Gallery 展覽「ORA ORA 惡羅惡羅」展出的雕塑作品,保留了他一貫的日式傳統風格,加上日本文化代表之一的相撲手和紋身,非常配合~

和本尊的合照,超巨大的~

展覽單位 SHDW Gallery 官方介紹:

SHDW is proud to announce that, October 25th to November 9th, 2019, we will be presenting “Reiwa”, Shohei Otomo’s debut Hong Kong exhibition.

Working mostly in ballpoint pen, Shohei Otomo’s insightful depictions of Japan expose its commercial facade and deepest underground culture. Delivered with an unmistakable level of biting political analysis and technical perfection, Shohei’s work straddles the worlds of art, illustration, anime and cyber-punk. Since gaining online global recognition as one of Japan’s leading illustrators, Shohei has produced nearly a decade’s worth of exhibitions across Paris, Tokyo, Milan and Melbourne; worked on projects with such names as Youtube, Agnès B, Sony Playstation and has an upcoming project with Bape Black. By recently expanding his art practice into sculpture, Shohei has begun to solidify himself as an important figure in Japanese contemporary art. His upcoming exhibition with SHDW gallery will present the latest in his artistic development, through a collection of drawings and sculpture.

The title of this exhibition, “Reiwa” – refers to the current era of Japanese history. On the 1st of May 2019, Emporer Naruhito ascended the throne as the 126th Emperor of Japan, taking the nation out of the Heisei era and into the infancy of the Reiwa. While the Japanese Foreign Ministry felt the need to reiterate that the correct interpretation of Reiwa was “beautiful harmony”, nevertheless the common translation of the word’s characters remain “to command”. A coincidence that poetically reflects the sense of uncertainty in what lays ahead. The previous era, the Heisie era (1989 – 2019), begun with economic hardship and ended with unimagined technological developments and cultural changes. With “Reiwa”, Shohei has created an important body of work that reflects on Japan’s transformation while attempting to project into it’s future. Shohei is a genius illustrator with a talent for deconstructing Japanese culture and using it’s parts to build sophisticated social critique. He’s a subtle symbolist and his work is full of hidden meaning. We invite you to come and find interpretation in the art of “Reiwa”, as both Shohei Otomo and Japan enter a new era.

由SHDW主辦, 日本藝術家大友昇平首個香港個人展覽”令和”將於2019年10月25至11月9日舉行, 到時將會展出大友一系列最近期的創作成果包括畫作、雕塑及裝置藝術。
