Asakura Kouhei’s kaleidoscopic world

Japanese illustrator Asakura Kouhei’s world is one where animals and the four elements – fire, water, air and earth – live in harmony within a psychedelic playground, executed with rainbow watercolours and acrylics.

The Tokyo-born Kouhei sees the world through his colourful prism which adds vibrancy, boldness and purity in his translations of Mother Earth and all her marvels.

Asakura grew up close to nature, in a place rich with greenery and filled with magic in progress. This undoubtedly affected the central ideas within his work.

He focuses on translating nature’s journey through acrylic, watercolor, and unique color and pattern combinations.

A popular presence on Behance since 2012, Kouhei has been showcasing his work to international acclaim.

More recently, he designed the album cover for harmonising husband and wife duo, The Well Pennies, ‘Endlings’ release.
