Imai Atsushi was born in 1973 and currently lives in Himeji City. He returned as a painter in 2014 for the first time in 20 years. He has been participating in art fairs around the world since 2017. The illustrations he draws are drawn with the female pop stars turned into characters. I also draw collaborative illustrations with Japanese anime.

He also draws colored pencil drawings and pencil drawings.

The drawing of the colored pencils draws on the theme of female homosexuality and bewitching, and the pencil drawing draws mainly the landscape around the buildings.

All the pictures he draws are conscious of "Japan". Various things such as women's fashion, gestures and makeup. And when drawing landscapes, predict and draw places that are considered to be anime scenes, which are also the subculture that Japan represents.
