Ryo Takemasa

Reminiscent of traditional Japanese woodblock prints, Ryo Takemasa invites us to share his original perspective on the world.

Ryo Takemasa’s impressive body of work clearly demonstrates his incredible range; his portfolio leaps from editorial illustrations to advertising, and even product design. But there is a common thread: Takemasa’s distinctive style is evident throughout, drawing on clean, minimal shapes to portray the mundane, while the subtle textures in his illustrations are clearly influenced by traditional Japanese woodblock prints.
