EPHEMERA was a self-published riso art zine consisting of 56 A4 pages documenting the journey across the West Coast of Japan - from Tokyo to Mine (Yamaguchi) and back - through Shimonoseki, Kitakyushu, Hiroshima, Kure, Okayama, Osaka, Kyoto, Nagoya, and Niigata, during the period of September to December 2022.
The project tried to capture a glimpse of the Japanese graffiti counterculture. It included illustrations, photographs of pieces, throwups, tags, stickers, legal murals, and urban environment and it features models of frequently taken trains on the major San'yō Main Line.
Every page was separated into four channels and printed at the Wild Press studio in Glasgow with the following colours: blue, fluo pink, yellow, and black producing a unique visual effect.
The zine was published in a limited amount of 28 pieces, hand-stamped and signed.
