Ukiyoe is a school of painting that flourished from the 17th to the 19th centuries in Japan. Artists of this genre produce prints and woodblock prints of subjects such as beautiful maidens, kabuki actors and sumo wrestlers, scenes from historical and folk tales, scenes Beautiful excursions and landscapes everywhere, plants and animals. The term Ukiyoe translates to “pictures of the unreal world”.
There have been many series that have been redrawn by artists in the Ukiyoe style, but the most successful are probably One Piece and Dragon Ball. However, most recently, a young Japanese artist made fans gasp when recreating the characters in Tokyo Revengers in the style of Ukiyoe.
This is very difficult because unlike other manga, Tokyo Revengers is a series for teenagers and the characters in this manga are also very young and modern. So how is this young Japanese author able to recreate the “marshals” in Tokyo Revengers with the traditional art style of Ukiyoe? Check out the series of photos below!
