Ryohei Hase Artworks
In Japan, the word “cute” or kawaii can be stamped on just about everything when it comes to aesthetics. Cute dogs, dolls, cartoons and cars are the accepted standard. Now picture human bodies with wolf heads tearing each other apart. Pigs crowded around a dinner table salivating over their roasted brethren. Japanese artist and Tokyo resident Ryohei Hase illustrates beautifully disturbing scenes with obsessive detail. Cannibalism is at times a running theme in his work. Using Photoshop and other software, Hase creates digital art that almost challenges traditional painting if not coexisting without notice. Take a look at some of his work below.
Aggressive/Dramatic Zuko that make me giggle.
Zuko is basically the most perfectly accurate teenager ever to appeal on TV.
raise your glass for the type-A insecure teenagers torn between an intense desire to please and a passionate wish that the world might hopefully implode and crush everyone before dinnertime
Some context: entering this season, no woman had completed a televised course in either Japanese or American Ninja Warriors. I’d also argue that ANW’s qualifying courses are harder than any Stage 1 course on either.
This woman is a fucking badass. First woman ever to advance!
I’m not crying your crying
She is amazing!
On a separate note, I’m so happy to find out that ANW survived the G4 channel ending and made it to network TV.
Kacy Catanzaro: the first woman in history to qualify for Mt. Midoriyama.
I was telling some of my students last night (especially the ones somehow even smaller than I am, including two very badass ladies) to look this performance up cuz it is legit inspiring.
There were like FOUR places where her height required her to JUMP when taller competitors could REACH. So cool.
I just watched this last night, and she is incredible. 5’ tall, 100# flat and she beasts through the course even making it up the ramp in one run. She’s positively epic. Makes me want to look into freerunning clubs around here.
She is literally one of my favorite people and a huge inspiration to me. She might be a heck of a lot shorter than me (literally 10 inches shorter), but to do what she can takes some serious strength and endurance. I can’t do half of what she does today, but one day I will.
This is badass!!!!
