The "Big Gun Down" is on, Imai Hiroki' , whom I mentioned here the Master Patina Artist from Japan is pushing just like our European Master Landry Lacour (mentioned here and here) very hard on the patina art work and the discipline of this new artistry work on mens shoes. Both bringing this art to heavenly levels. Mr. Hiroki has published some very interesting patinas on a few pairs of shoes, I thought you might be interested to see the the new levels of artistry attained by these two unique artists who are really in their own league of patina innovators. From my side it is pure admiration & adoration of these two masters, each unique in their artistic approach but being different from one other, however both aspiring for the highest respect for the art work which they are both dedicated to, passionate about and have respect for. Well done gents.
