Art: Shinjuku Angel by Artist Jasmine Ann Becket-Griffith
Shinjuku Angel - Last week I was in Japan. I had a fantastic time, what a great country! Our first night in Tokyo we went out to dinner in Shinjuku. Shinjuku is a very fun place, definitely a bustling "nightlife" area of Tokyo. It's packed with restaurants and clubs, bars & shops all stacked on top of each other. I've tried to capture the neon jungle of nighttime Shinjuku in this painting - bright lights and manic urban atmosphere - a creatively dressed (gotta say I'm very impressed with Tokyo's style, and everybody has cool boots!) little angel, lost and a little overwhelmed. She has dark hair and wings - all reflecting the rainbow-neon lights & signs all around her. Cars drive hectically through the street, adding to the flashing lights and general confusion. This piece looks even prettier in person with the vibrant colours, it truly can be the focus of any room. 24" high by 18" side - it is an original acrylic painting on masonite.
