Mitsuhiro Arita Interview: The Man Behind The Art


Introducing our one on one Mitsuhiro Arita interview during his event at Hyper Japan, London on Saturday 13th July. Attending the event as press, we were very lucky to be given the opportunity to be part of a group interview for legendary artist Arita-san. As things transpired, we were luckier than we thought.
We had planned to attend the group interview and film proceedings for Braysh Gaming, but as it turned out, we were the only attendees for the interview! Whilst this caught us off guard by quite a bit, it was a unique experience where we were able to have a one on one chat and discover the man behind the art.
This isn’t the first time we’ve discussed the art of Mitsuhiro Arita, as you may remember a recent article on how the new Tag Team GX cards has saved the art of the Sun and Moon era.

In this exclusive interview you can expect to hear about things such as Arita-san’s early influences, how he challenges himself every day, and some priceless advice for upcoming artists. A true modern day inspiration, we hope you enjoy the video:
