JAPAN---Anime is the new religion, at least when it comes to these re-imagined religious works of art by Hiroshi Mori. Mori combines Japanese anime and pop art with some of the most iconic religious portraits of the Renaissance era to create a fresh new take on classical Western and Japanese “rimpa”-style art. Each of the paintings in the series employs a combination of acrylic, urethane, silver mirror plating, and UV-cured resin on aluminum and were featured in a number of solo exhibitions in Tokyo from 2013-2014.
