The Japanese artist Dragon76 was born in 1976 and currently lives and works in New York. He is renowned for his murals that take inspiration from both manga and ukiyo-e, depicting meticulously detailed characters and landscapes defined by black shadow, superimposed on several layers of complex structures and vibrant color. In his murals, he encourages coexistence between opposites in an attempt to do away with prejudice in the world, also exemplified by his participating in art projects in refugee camps.
