Time Out says

Created by full-time illustrator Djohan Hanapi, The Sultry Princesses series embraces the beauty of eroticism with a side of subtle humour. Influenced by the popularity of Disney princesses, Djohan brings it to a more intimate level, creating a new world – and fantasy – of what it could have been behind closed doors in their provincial life. You'll find familiar characters in his solo exhibition – but not like you've seen them before, and definitely not as innocent. 

Djohan also runs Knuckles & Notch, a risograph press and studio in Singapore. When not running a studio, he makes art heavily influenced by pop culture. Besides The Sultry Princesses series, he is also known for his series of illustrations based on films by Hong Kong film director, Wong Kar Wai.
