The artist ukiyomemes hails from a strange world where internet lore, memes, and pop culture collide with classic Japanese art and mythology. ukiyomemes synthesizes themes from art, literature, and culture across the ages—up to this very moment when millions of new ideas are posted, shared, and consumed each day.
These new creations live at Memes of the Floating World and on walls in homes around the world. Each high-effort meme is created using a unique blend of traditional ink and painting techniques, digital processes, and found objects like vintage paper and fabric textures. Since its inception, Memes of the Floating World continues to gain international attention and expand ever further into the digital primordial soup in which it was born.
