Teiji Hayama's paintings join together western and Japanese influences, combining different art historical periods with contemporary Japanese pop culture. Hayama's pale, etereal figures with frail bodies and pale tinited eyes often inspired by mangas, portray an angelic appearance which clashes with a penetrating and unnerving glare directed at the viewer. Teiji Hayama communicates the innocence of children by portraying nude girls. Nudity combined with innocence and vulnerability is often depicted in Japanese pop art.
