About Daisuke Okamoto
Born in 1979, raised in Tokyo, Japan, and currently living and working in Los Angeles, Okamoto represents the idea of the hybrid in both identity and transformation. Drawn with a passion for mark making, Okamoto employs repetitive line drawing in ink to work for as long as years on a single drawing. Daisuke Okamoto’s drawing “OKAINA IMAGE” investigates the cycle of life in the complex, biomorphic narratives of the organic. Influenced by all that is sci-fi, Japanese nationalism, and psychedelic culture; Okamoto’s drawings are intricate systems of penmanship.
He recently landed a great opportunity to work with Microsoft and their new Surface Pro 8 which took his work into the digital world. He was even heavily featured in their commercial which you can see here (below).
Popkiller also had the pleasure of having Daisuke work his magic in our store back in 2018. We are so very proud to have an amazing piece from Daisuke forever immortalized in our brick n mortar flagship store in Los Angeles as a tribute to our City of Angels, our home since 2003. Here is a look into his process! Feel free come to our Pop flagship in DTLA to see this work of art in person.
