Take A Stroll Through Tokyo’s Secret Side With These Watercolour Paintings

This Polish illustrator draws Japanese storefronts and they’re very telling

Watercolour illustrator Mateusz Urbanowicz is offering a beautifully different angle to the futuristic neon-lit Tokyo we often see in movies. The Polish artist depicts a more quiet and ordinary side to the city through his watercolour paintings of Tokyo storefronts. 

A charming exploration of old buildings and little home businesses, take a look through Mateusz’s work below. To those who have travelled around Asia, it is reminiscent of the many street corner shops and neighbourhood stores. Shop as the locals do.
