Kengo Kimura’s art is inspired by the Japanese print style of Ukiyo-e, roughly translating to, “pictures of the floating world.”
The Japanese dynasty and temples capture Kengo’s imagination and flows onto his canvases through his fountain pen — reinterpreted with his own distinct style. Ukiyo-e is a strong influence in Kengo’s work. This ancient method can be translated as “pictures of the floating world” and depicts themes of beauty, poetry, nature, spirituality, love and sex. A Japanese Emperor is depicted on the Faction x Stance Collab products, immersed in intricate details of a playing card.
