Imai Atsushi


Born in 1973.  I currently live in Himeji City.  

I returned as an artist for the first time in 20 years in 2014.  I have been participating in art fairs around the world since 2017.  The illustrations I am drawing are changing female pop stars into characters.  I also draw a collaboration illustration with Japanese animation.

My illustrations have also become CDs and novel jackets in the past.

I also draw colored pencil drawings and pencil drawings.

The drawing of the colored pencils draws on the theme of female homosexuality and bewitching, and the pencil drawing draws mainly the landscape around the buildings.
