Mr. G Bio: One of the rare left-handed pinstripers, Mr.G came across pinstriping through wildman’s pinstriping demonstration in 1992. from then on he was hooked and combined his status as the TIKI pioneer in japan with his pinstriping art. Like many in the Japanese scene, he established close links with pinstripers in the US early on. This culminated in his first one-man show in L.A. in 2005 where all the works on offer sold out. Tiki is an obsession of Mr.G`s. He is one of the foremost collectors of Tiki mugs in japan and recently created an original Tiki mug design for the leading Tiki manufacturers, TIKI Farm, of San Clemente, CA.
A huge figure on the scene in japan and the USA, where he is represented by the Gasoline Gallery in El Segundo, CA ,his work was also featured in 2008/09 at the In Search of Tiki show, at the Forest Lawn Museum in Glendale. He has also been experimenting with new media, producing the cover art for Burnout MagazineNo.46. The main body of work remains the striping for cars and bikes, and his T-shirt designs, as well as the ever- present tiki art works. He is also spreading the art through his Kustom Kulture Skool, in collaboration with Nash spreads the word about the origins and art of Kustom Kulture. Mr.G`s studio is now in FUKUOKA JAPAN Prefecture and his studio to outside commission work is roughly 50/50. He likes advertising some personal details: “My blood type is O, my favorite food is rice omelette, I drive a 60`s Ford falcon and I also want you to quote my motto : You Gotta Run When You Gotta Run” . We`re not sure quite sure what he means there, but the artistry speaks for itself.
Makoto Bio: MAKOTO was born in Aichi Japan, in 1968. He started working as a pinstriper in his own studio in 1996. His career took off when he decided to paint a “Fortune Cat” and keep it in his studio for good luck. The “Fortune Cat” is known in Japan as a lucky charm ornament that leads to success in business. Soon “Fortune Cat” became famous and now Makoto’s originals are loved by people all around the world.
