Musings on art and life.
Having learned to paint and draw from a young age, and having cultivated a (surprising) ability to have patience while creating delicate and detailed images of my own, I’m still quite awe-struck when artists such as the Japanese illustrator Soga Kayoko come along. She has a wonderfully graphic style; her monochromatic work attempts to depict the moments we seldom take much notice of, such as sleeping or brushing our teeth, where we might not be feeling anything specific at all.
What I love so much about this art is the unbelievable amount of detail in the wild foliage spouting from body parts and the surrounding walls, as well as the distinctive Japanese print-like quality of the images. Soga seems to have created her own wonderful world of characters that all look very cool while doing not very much at all.
As the artist does not have a website of her own, I had to borrow images from another blog- WeWastTime and one of my favourite websites, Taxi. All these images link directly back to their sites. I hope they don’t mind.
