The Mythical creatures Akira Nagasawa refers to as “tigers” verge on the edge of abstraction. Sometimes they unmistakably are indeed tigers, but often they could just as well be any sort of feline creature made out of not much more than a few shapes which, yes, could be some kind of cat, perhaps…
But always, always, they are powerful and mysterious and primitive. Painted in earth tones and royal reds and blues and golds. Grinning and looking stupid like only a mythical tiger dares to look nowadays.
Are you gonna tell him he looks stupid?
Didn’t think so.
