A cool guy with nasty tattoos in Tokyo. Only bad boys or mafia related people have such tattoos in Japan. He's at a famous crossroad in Shibuya area, about to cross the street, with an "I don't care what you think" attitude, his cigarette at hand (in Tokyo you can't smoke in the street, you can only do so in limited areas). The image dimensions are 7"x4.5" on heavyweight paper that measures 8.27" × 11.69". It will need a frame for display.

Getting to Know Orlando

Using India ink and watercolor, Orlando Marin-Lopez conveys a poignant sense of humor through his intricate drawings of Japanese urban life. He assimilates the delicate nature of Japanese printmaking into the contemporary world. He uses the lines of brickwork and infrastructure to masterfully guide the eye through his compositions. Orlando, who is also a writer, views drawing as writing’s visual counterpart. The specific details Orlando illuminates function as the narrator of the composition. From sake bottles on window sills to minute inscriptions on storefronts, Orlando’s specificity of detail gives the sense of totality in his documentation of the city.
