Tenjin Ikeda

One of Mr. Ikeda's philosophies goes something like this: If you are who you are, you don't need to tell everyone about it. All well and good, except here at C-Ball HQ we feel the need to inform our readers that Tenjin is a total bad-ass, born and bred in NYC, who has over the years created an incredible body of relief prints centered around his deep connections with his own ancestry and knowledge thereof. And if that ain't enough, he's also taught printmaking, built staircases for a living, and covered himself in clay in the rain forest. Yes!
