‘Yakuza’ is a Giclée print by contemporary artist Mason Storm. From a limited edition of 100, the print is signed and numbered by the artist.
Elusive artist Mason Storm creates meticulously detailed prints from a fusion of conventional painting techniques and mediums, cultural iconography, and themes of modernity. His work turns around the traditional portrait, adding in elements form contemporary culture: from music, to TV, to advertising, Storm’s updates are brilliant satirical commentaries on twenty-first century society.
‘Yakuza’ depicts a menacing Japanese gangster (or Yakuza) in astonishingly life-like vividness: all of the sitter’s intricate tattoos are rendered in exquisite detail, while his forbidding facial expressions leap from the print with compelling intensity.
