Omoide Yokocho (otherwise known as “Memory Lane” or “Piss Alley”) for Light Grey Art Lab’s In Place show. Buy a print here!
Omoide Yokocho is a series of slim, cramped alleyways in Shinjuku, packed with yakitori stalls that can only fit 5-10 people at a time and salarymen looking for a drink after work. It’s basically a timecapsule from post-war 1950’s Japan, and it looks like an amazing place to visit. A lotta work & reference, but one of my favorite pieces I’ve done. Thanks to Irene Koh for double-checking all my japanese signage!
Can you spot the cat? :3
