ESOW combines traditional Japanese art styles with modern graffiti styles to create street art murals that are a unique blend of past and present Japanese culture. In this painting, ESOW has designed a Japanese man in a traditional Japanese illustrative style, holding up a heavy ball of graffiti lettering. This artwork seems to imply that traditional Japanese art styles are being squashed by contemporary art.
