Fantasista Utamaro is part of the new generation of young Japanese artists who are challenging the tradional boundaries of art. Born in Japan and based in Brooklyn, he works as a director, illustrator, art director and graphic designer. His distinct style explores the concepts of celebration, limitlessness and freedom through an explosion of energetic technicolour. He recently collaborated with Pharrell Williams on his music promo, 'It Girl', often collaborates with Murakami Takashi and last year had his work exhibited at the Urban Art Fair in Paris.
