12x12" acrylic on canvas (Framed in Black Wood)
"Oni" was created in 2015. I named the piece after giant shape shifting ogre-like trolls with horns from Japanese folklore. I have always drawn inspiration from Japanese and Chinese scroll paintings and folk art, and this is a great example of that. The sides are framed in black wood and this piece is ready to hang. Though most Oni are scary demons, this demon is very much rehabilitated into a lovable creature that will protect your home from other Oni for years to come!
