Hideyuki Katsumata‘s meticulous and colored works are tinged with a psychedelic aesthetic and invite us into an exuberant universe inhabited by mutant characters and monsters with multiple limbs and eyes, robots, UFOs and dragons. The scenery he has created is influenced by both Asian mythology and manga culture.
