Hisashi Okawa is an artist living and working in Tokyo. Her illustrations appear very simple and naïve. Her colourful, dotted-eyed (à la Opie) characters convey the artist’s humor. Our selection of mostly black and white drawings shows another of Okawa’s sides: that which is more dramatic, representing life in the metropolis, sometimes surreal, sometimes not.
