Japanese folklore/Gene Simmons mashup

Artist Xiaobaosg says:

This illustration is inspired by Japanese folktales , the fight between Ushiwaka ( 牛若丸 ) & Benkei (西塔武蔵坊弁慶 ) at Gōjō Bridge in Kyoto .

I had changed it to a guitar fight and replaced Benkei with Gene Simmons. (from Rock Band, KISS).

*This illustration will be exhibited in FIDI space 台北市武昌街二段89號地下一樓 豪華戲院in89 (Ximen, Taipei) from April 10th to May 3th , 2009 for BU X HI 2 exhibition.
