Streetwear Illustrations Dive Into A Dystopian World Of Demon Hunters – Design You Trust

Streetwear Illustrations Dive Into A Dystopian World Of Demon Hunters

A mashup of traditional Japanese ghost symbology, hip-hop retro-futurism, and urban street couture finds its way in the illustrations of 199hates. The Argentina-based visual artist, a.k.a., Mau Lencinas, focuses on illustrations, character designs, and 2D animations. An avid watcher of 90s Japanese TV shows, Lencinas began to draw early on in his childhood. Now, mostly inspired by Akira creator Katsuhiro Otomo and the urban style of our nascent neo-modern era, 199hates creates a series of demonic gangsters bearing kanji symbols, and crews of demon hunters adapted from Japanese traditional folklore.
