50 photos qui prouvent que le body-painting n’a aucune limite

Amazing Jiro, il s’agit bien entendu d’un nom de scène, habite à Tokyo et il est spécialisé dans tout ce qui touche au body painting. Très connu dans le milieu, il partage ses plus belles créations sur son compte Instagram.

Amazing Jiro est donc né à Tokyo. Après avoir obtenu son diplôme du secondaire, ce passionné de make-up et de SFX a choisi de rejoindre l’Université des Arts de Tokyo afin de compléter son cursus.

L’initiative a été couronnée de succès et Jiro a obtenu le diplôme convoité.

Amazing Jiro, le roi tokyoïte du body painting

Par la suite, il a travaillé pendant quelques mois pour des entreprises spécialisées de la région afin de fonder sa propre société, Jiyoji Co., Ltd.

Les années suivantes ont été plutôt fastes et Amazing Jiro a eu l’occasion de travailler sur pas mal de projets différents. Il a notamment réalisé une partie de la campagne publicitaire du film GANTZ:0, mais il a aussi eu l’occasion de travailler sur des pubs Audi, Docomo, Toyota ou même Resident Evil.

En parallèle, il s’est également présenté à plusieurs concours et il a même été désigné comme faisant partie des 10 artistes dignes d’intérêt par le Make-up Artist Magazine.

Mais Amazing Jiro ne se contente pas de partager ses plus belles créations sur son site. L’homme est aussi très présent sur les réseaux sociaux et notamment sur Instagram, où il compte un peu plus de 140 000 abonnés.

Un succès éclatant, donc, et qui s’explique principalement par l’originalité de ses créations. Jiro est en effet capable de travailler sur n’importe quelle partie du corps et même sur les mains. Avec, à chaque fois, un résultat complètement fou.

Pour la petite histoire, le body painting, ou peinture corporelle, n’est pas une pratique récente. Elle nous vient en réalité des sociétés tribales. Les guerriers se grimaient en effet très souvent en utilisant du charbon afin d’impressionner leurs ennemis. Si l’usage a changé, la tradition est restée.

The baby who was inside her mother’s stomach, Umeko became 5 years old. Now, her little sister, Momoka is inside to be born soon. 5 years ago, when I was drawing blue roses on Umeko’s mother’s belly, Umeko reacted to the feeling of the brush by kicking her mother’s belly. She grew/grows up healthy, strong, and energetic. This time too, I noticed her little sister moved a lot too while I was painting, so I’m very sure that she will grow up healthy too!

Artwork that I created during makeup demonstration at my school, Amazing School JUR @amazing.school.jur Every year, we have a course where we teach about character makeup. We teach every step from design creation, sculpture, to makeup. Since I don’t have enough time to create SFX artwork from beginning to end recently, this class hour is becoming precious.

I worked on the creatives of the album jacket of Faylan's greatest hit album "mind as Rock! ", which will be released as the celebration of 10th anniversary from her debut. Fine depiction makes it harder to distinguish between drawing and CG. However, when it comes to Amazing JIRO, of course, it is a hand-drawn. I hope you enjoy the wolf on the back of the hand that came to life. Faylanさんのデビュー10周年を記念した ベストアルバム『 mind as Rock!』 のジャケットクリエイティブを担当致しました。 CGと見間違われがちですが… 勿論、すべて手描きです… 手の甲に命を宿した狼を堪能して頂けると嬉しいです。 Faylan / mind as Rock!

"The Universe of Diversity" Created this artwork at the request of Alopecia Style Project Japan @alopecia.style, an organization that supports women who had lost their hair for various reasons. The feeling of a complex that anyone can have or inferiority due to being in a minority could be one of the uniqueness within diversity. For this artwork, using the shape of the head of models with alopecia for painting was to express the potentials that universe have.
