   "My manifesto, Basara is based on the subculture of the “street samurai culture” that is excessively decorative and imbued with a rebellious spirit that defies traditional values. Basara stands for anti-authority and anti-aristocratic culture."    - Hisashi Tenmyouya
- Interview w/ Laura J. Mueller

   For this post, I tried to gather Hisashi's work with traditional Japanese themes & subject matter; samurai, legends, heroes, mythical creatures, etc.

   "I have taken inspiration from various schools of early-modern (1615–1868) Japanese painting like ukiyo-e, Kanō school, and Maruyama school."
Hisashi Tenmyouya (天明屋尚) - http://www3.ocn.ne.jp/~tenmyoya/
   He calls his unique Japanese painting "Neo Nihonga" which revives Japanese traditional paintings as a contemporary art.

   In 2000 he established his style, "Butouha" which shows the resistant attitude for authoritative art system through his paintings

   In 2010, he proposed a new Japanese art scheme named "Basara" which is extravagant and extraordinary and embodies a Samurai aesthetic like "Basara" in Nanboku dynasty era and "Kabuki-mono" in the end of Sengoku era.
