Karifurava – Illustration

Karifurava is a Japanese illustrator and artist with a unique almost ‘low-tech’ style that is at once inspired by traditional Japanese illustration but at the same time entirely new. With elements of street art and a bold use of colour, Karifurava’s work is instantly recognisable – and really quite compelling.

Sadly, he is fairly elusive – only maintaining an Instagram account for an online presence. We do suggest you follow him though!

Gurafiku by Ryan Hageman

Gurafiku is a great blog curated by Ryan Hageman. It features graphic design from Japan and gives us a beautiful window into a culture and style we don’t see much in South Africa.

As we all know, inspiration can come from anywhere and it’s important to know what’s out there – going all the way to Japan is a good start!
