It’s the year of Tiger and sportswear brand Onituska Tiger is celebrating with a new line of clothes featuring the art of the late Yasushi Nirasawa. Yasushi Nirasawa (1963 - 2016) provided designs and concept art for Shin Megami Tensei IV, the Kamen Rider series, Devilman, and more during his illustrious career, and now Onitsuka is releasing t-shirts and sweaters with his Onitsuka Tiger Man character on them for 2022. Sculptor Takayuki Takeya (Shin Godzilla, Final Fantasy VII Remake), has also created statues of the Tiger Man to be displayed at Onitsuka’s flagship stores (though these are not for sale). Unfortunately these shirts are currently only available in Asia, but maybe it's the harbinger of some new tokusatsu adjacent drip?
We have a quick read up for Sculptors Issue 7, which is available NOW! Sculptors is a modeling and hobby magazine for seasoned pros and people that just want to admire Japanese art alike. Each issue has a breadth of different artists making new and original creations.
