Drawing Artist
Hiroyuki ‘HIROTTON’ Uemura, born 1986, Japan.
A graduate of the Osaka University of Art, Hirotton relocated to London in 2008 and has since been working as a freelance designer for his company, ‘PARADOX’. Currently based in Tokyo, Japan, his recent works include illustrations for fashion, print, publishing, skateboard brands, the music industry and his own exhibitions. 
He has also been doing screen printing.
His personal art work is influenced by punk, skate and street culture. He is always inspired and excited by what’s happening around him and tries to capture that moment in his work, so others can understand and see life through his eyes.
