baku-maeda (1)  This is Baku Maeda, an artist based out of Hokkaido, Japan. His work involves highly imaginative doodles and illustrations that typically turn to nature and wildlife for inspiration. It’s actually consistent with my perception of  the lush – and sometimes harsh – Hokkaido environment.  He just finished up his first solo show in April at this rad looking ping-pong bar in Sapporo. I really like his work and hope to see more of him in the future!
