Japanese street artist Shinichi Tashiro (a.k.a. ichi) is known for piecing together inventive collages that make witty commentaries on fashion and consumer culture. Inspired by Picasso’s Surrealist period and the works of Jean Michel Basquiat, he has stayed loyal to collages that have crafted a distinct style and signature to his work. When ichi was 21-years-old, he traveled to New York to begin his life as a homeless street artist in a new country. Ichi called Central Park home for a year. The young visionary has repeatedly rejected job offers in a commercial industry to pursue his own artistry. His artworks were the best-seller on the opening day of Hong Kong Art Central in 2016.
Today, artworks by the young artist are well received by international art collectors along with celebrated street-artists like Mr. Brainwash and Nick Walker.
