Backside works. is an artist who has not revealed real name, gender, age, as well as face. However, through various clues in the works, we know that the artist is from Fukuoka, Japan.
Why does the artist hide his identity? In an interview with the artist, he answered jokingly that the reason why the artist does not appear in front of the public is because he is not confident about appearances.
The artist thinks that the audience who sees the work is the main character, and draws a pretty girl named Heroine (the female protagonist in novels and movies) who creates a story together with this audience, and wants them to imagine their own story together with the Heroine.
It is with this thought in mind that the artist creates art.
Naturally, as a child, the artist has been influenced by Japanese otaku culture and street culture, and uses a variety of materials such as painting, silkscreen, pen drawings, and spray painting with elements of Japanese anime, manga, and graffiti art.
Backside works. has collaborated with many brands such as Levis, Converse, and Weekly Shonen Jump.
