This is a drawing based on one of my pictures by Henna Salonen, check out her Deviantart page. I felt really good to see that a young artist got inspired by one of my pictures, so I’m sharing this with you here. To be honest I prefer her representation than my original picture, she gave it more mystery.
Here is the original picture:

Last Friday I went to the HUOVA living art event. It was pretty interesting and a lot of cool people were there.
The concept is simple, just a painting in 20 minutes in front of a public. Creating just in the moment, living art is what happened that day.
It was located in Shibuya, the young district of Tokyo in an old and surrealist building.

Let’s talk about graffiti but not common ones, these are really artistic, amazing and wonderful graffiti existing in Japan and collected in a book: Graffiti Japan by Remo Camerota.
This is an incredible work that took Camerota more than 2 years to complete. It’s a photographic collection of the most amazing graffiti works all over Japan, showing the dedication and artistic talent of their creators and showing, as well, the patience and talented work of a photographer like Camerota.
In this work I could appreciate the instinct that moves the heart of a photographer to show the world which appeared to his eyes. This is the need to express our own feelings trough a light hunting machine as a camera. Camerota is showing here that instinct, that strong need to bring to our eyes what he catches with his own eyes, and what he felt in that moments, walking down hundred of streets all over the Japanese islands.
Here you have some pictures that show just a small part of this great work.
