ABOUT.

My name is REIKO LAUPER. I’m a Japanese artist based in New York.

 

I’m specialized in highly detailed drawings rendered in ink, mostly using the Stippling technique.

I take commissions, and I also provide other services such as graphic design and low-budget website design.

 

In the past, I had the chance to work with various clients including Patricia Field, FDNY, Wendigo Productions (NY) to name a few.

There are 4 elements that inspire my art: The Underground Culture, Music, My Japanese Roots, and The Light & Dark theory.
I like to draw traditional Japanese motifs with stippling that is often used in the punk scene.

Assimilating these concepts, I consider my drawing style, "Neo Japanese art" :)

I'm open to any creative projects.  Contact me for a consultation!
