Back in 2011 we featured for the first time the fantastic work of Polish artist Michal Lisowski.
Mr Misang is an illustrator from Seoul, Korea. It's a fascinating country with an interesting history. We are featuring the work from Mr Misang because of the insane illustration entitled: Rough World. Filmed by DawittGold who is director from PEACHES, and music by NAFLA and LOOPY who are famous rapper from label MKIT, Korea. I would definitely advise you to check out the video!
When I got offered this work, I've thought about Tokyo. And I've thought about 'Shinto' - Japanese Indigenous religion. I think people don't worshipping their 'Shinto gods' now, but worshipping money, sex, power. So it's 'new Shinto'. The subject has changed, but the essential of worshiping didn't changed. Not only in Japan, but also in Korea. And maybe other countries are similar. And I've thought about Japanese sex culture, crime, getto and so on. (Because it's title is 'Rough World'! haha) I mixed them in one pot and boiled with red-magenta color. This is my ROUGH WORLD.
