    • The first collection of Chesley-Awards-nominated artist.
    • Illustrations featuring unique textures and organic-inorganic fusion.
    • The perfect collection for dark Sci-Fi, steampunk lovers.

    Based in Tokyo, the emerging young artist shichigoro-shingo has gained a reputation worldwide for his illustration works. In 2015, he attracted attention for eye-catching contributions to a TV commercial for Tokyo Mode Gakuen, a design school in Japan, and also held a solo exhibition in Russia. Other recent work includes cover art for CLARKESWORLD MAGAZINE (nominated for the Chesley Awards 2016 for Best Cover Illustration) and a brand-new Sci-Fi short story collection by Caroline M. Yoachim (Fairwood Press) in the U.S.A. He has also collaborated with Australian apparel company Black Milk Clothing. Characteristic of his paintings are distinctive combinations of textures - iron rust and skin, wire and black hair, bolts, and fur. His work shows us the beauty in the organic and the inorganic coming together as one. These gorgeously detailed illustrations are sure to inspire readers' imaginations.

    shichigoro-shingo’s work has appeared on the web since around 2010. He creates themes through motifs of the “fusion of machines and organisms.” He exhibited at industrial punk 2018, The Sound of Machines 2021 (Group Exhibition) and at Vanilla Gallery (Tokyo). He has worked on book covers, illustrations, advertisements, CD covers, etc., in Japan and overseas.
