We have always been huge fans of the works of Aya Uekawa, an artist we have featured in the magazine in the past because of her incredibly surreal but classic portrait styles and methods.

Looking through our archives this week, we remembered how much we liked the cover story from June 2006 with Portuguese painter, Jorge Santos.
