Sensual hologram-like works of art By Kazuki Takamatsu.

Takamatsu is a Japanese artist whose world is coming out of a fairy tale. But this fairy tale is not like the others. Dark and violent stories where floating melancholic childish figures are either in despair either in possession of lethal killing machines. Little melancholic lolitas posing with innocence create an atmospheric mystic world. Kazuki Takamatsu mixes traditional and modern techniques
He collects new paintings that bridge analog and digital art, crafting gouache and acrylic layers that recreate figures first imagined using 3-D software. The artist uses this method to also tether both Eastern and Western culture.

Shadow/Deapth mapping or projective shadowing is a process by which shadows are added to 3D computer graphics.
A statement speaks to this new work: “Developing even further his iconic style, Kazuki Takamatsu paints young girls that silently speak to the beholder through a mysterious but evocative language. Their faces remain pure and simple, while their hairstyles and clothes become more complex and detailed, demonstrating the artist’s attention to peculiarities that has always been typical of Asian art. The dark and empty backgrounds contribute to make the figures stand out and take predominance, while flows of emotion resound in the timeless scenes.”

  1. Je n’ai pas très bien compris la technique mais le résultat est curieux et plutôt joli. Ca me fait penser à des sculptures de cristal…


    1. De toute façon le procédé de cet artiste est complexe, rassurez-vous!
      La traduction est-elle insuffisante? Des termes en français seraient un plus peut-être?
      Si vous étiez plus nombreux (car je n’ai 2% d’abonnés français); je mettrais les textes aussi en français, cela me réjouirait.
      Si vous amenez des abonnés, je le ferai avec plaisir!
      Faîtes- moi part de vos idées pour une amélioration.

    1. Effectivement, tout à fait juste; mais aussi avec du verre / plastique, en couches superposées, dégradés sur un même ton, pour mettre en évidence le mat du brillant et ainsi les opposer.
      Merci Dominique

Artists deserve respect. Even if it bothers you and you don't like their work; refrain from negative opinions, non-constructive remarks. Opt for an objective analysis of the work as well as a good understanding of the author's intentions..Thx
