This piece is by popular artist Tenmyouya Hisashi. He’s a Japanese artist known for what he calls “Neo Nihonga” art. Basically, a new version of Japanese style art which of course is called  nihonga. This particular painting sold at a Christie’s art auction in Hong Kong for about $600,000. It’s 6.5 ft. by 6.5 ft big. It’s a painting of the iconic RX-79 from Mobile Suit Gundam. It’s aiming its beam rifle while a green dragon twists around the Gundam. Something every Gundam fan would love to have.
