Japanese Art for Sale
Japanese arts and culture and in particular the culture of the Samurai warriors. Old and new Japan:
Samurai armor is dissected from head to toe while the Samurai warrior is juxtaposed against the Universe. As the watchman and protector of the Universe, watching from ‘out a space’, he sees himself, among other strange things in the universe. “Chocolate Manga Lisa” is an homage to shōjo manga (and the female manga artists - Year 24 Group / Magnificent 24s) which depicts an ethnic version of the mid- 20th century Japanese female comic book character, but as a black Japanese girl.
Paris based contemporary artist Ealy Mays' online art gallery presents a beautiful selection of figurative paintings, art narratives, mixed media installations, Samurai artworks and Shōjo Manga art
