Japanese artist Hiroyuki MORI makes modern wrestlers travel back in time to ancient Japan. The clouds commonly seen in his drawings are derived from the “Golden Clouds” elements in traditional Japanese Kano school paintings. MORI’s lines are strongly descriptive. He incorporates his favorite wrestling characters into the golden clouds and stacks colors to present the layers of the characters in fun folk-like scenes.
