Mitomo Horihiro’s (formally Hiroshi Hirakawa) contemporary representations of the classic world of ukiyo-e speak of the ghosts of an era that, though long past, still resonate deeply today; influencing and inspiring current culture.
As a tattooer, Horihiro is immersed in a space that was and is at the heart of ukiyo-e. In fact it is difficult to mention one without the other. The relation between woodblock carvers, tattooers, painters, kabuki actors, geisha, etc. all intertwined to form the pictures of the floating world.
It could be said then that Horihiro is reflecting the world in which he is immersed, albeit with a lens that is extremely sensitive. He plays with myth in multiple dimensions; displaying a rare ability to transcend centuries within his imagery.

PUSHEAD Presents Hyperstoic 2014 NYC was a once in a lifetime event showcasing some of today's most incredible artists all in one location at Toy Tokyo Underground in NYC. Featuring Usugrow, Lango, Aaron Horkey, Brandon Holt, Wes Benscoter and of course PUSHEAD. This was probably PUSHEAD's most ambitious Hyperstoic in recent memory as the walls were filled with original art, paintings, toys, prints and posters. If you like any of the artists above, it was like a dream come true. There was so much amazing art, it was hard to pick any favorites, but I would have to say the collaboration prints between PUSHEAD and Horkey stole the show.
