New Paintings By Ryohei Hase, Japan

We continue to be absolutely amazed with the savagely surreal and adventurous work of Tokyo based artist Ryohei Hase. His latest creation comes in the form of an album cover, for the Japanese band L'Arc-en-Ciel. Hase created an intricate and finely detailed illustration to represent the hit song on the album titled Chase, where he shows a half-man-half-wolf desperately embracing an ethereal woman. Hase is a multidisciplinary artist, his work has been featured globally in magazines, websites, advertisements, CD covers, and video games - he says that these paintings are what he does in his "spare time." (Prints range from $200 - $600)
