Musings on art and life.
This morning I went trawling through the internet for British artists.. and got hopelessly distracted. Colossal is one of my favourite websites (I may have mentioned this before) and today it did not disappoint. These wicked cool painting/sculptures by Japanese artist Shintaro Ohata (check him out!) became the focus of my attention for quite some time. I am often impressed by the imaginative and delightful nature of Japanese art, and these are no exception. The every day scenes are a combination of 2D painted background with a figurative, carved 3D foreground; captured at moments and in lighting that make them dramatic and movie-like. Definitely work I’d like to see in real life some day- I’d be interested to see if my giddy school girl excitement is more intense when these are viewed up close..
