Mr. Hinai, known by his artist name "nuts", is a friend from back in high school. He is one of Japan's finest and most famous freehand sign painters. He has done signage and graphics for numerous shops and brands, and painters from around the world come to visit his gallery. I am impressed every time by his work, which crosses over styles reflecting various countries, eras, fonts and art forms. His imagination is limitless, and I am super excited for his future work.
