I really like these landscape paintings by Japanese artist Hiromichi Ito. Hiromichi majored in illustration at San Francisco’s Academy of Art University and then returned to Japan to study under the amazing Tatsuro Kiuchi (who we featured recently here). These days, Hiromichi now shares a studio in Tokyo with Tatsuro called Pen Still Writes.
Hiromichi’s paintings are really charming and he has a very playful sense of color. This great use of color also carries over to his other work, which is well worth checking out. His porfolio is filled with editorial projects and illustrations which features cute characters and adorable animals.
