I stumbled over some rather quite radical illustration works of Sao Paulo based MTV art director Beto Shibata recently.
His work demonstrates the visually effective outcome of combining a truck load of mediums including ink, acrylic paint, photography, screenprint and digital tools, while at the same time mixing up contemporary and vintage styles and imagery. Some of it is very reminiscent of the work of 20th Century master Sigmar Polke, if what I remember from art lessons at school don’t fail me.
Beto was kind enough to send over some of his recent stuff:
