08/05/2012 In pocket size sketchbooks, Akira Horikawa draws and reinterprets images that come into his mind, happenings, dreams, and emotion at the time. Through the activity, he tries to re-evaluate values and cognition that he has experienced in his life to welcome the nonsense with awe. His bizzare, sometimes sexually forward simple illustrations are stark and minimal but evoke the mind with strange, new possibilities.
Akira Horikawa has been drawing quirky images from his mind, dreams and emotions since 2007. He's filled quite a few pocket-sized sketchbooks and is now posting them on tumblr for your viewing pleasure. There are no gimmicks here and hardly any color to be found, just simple, unsteady lines that form re-interpreted and oddly fascinating compositions.
