I follow the “Artist of the Day” blog site. A couple of weeks ago on that  site, I spotted this Japanese artist, Masakatsu Sashie, and his very intriguing art. This particular piece, “Playland” (2012), especially caught my attention.

His profile on the Artist of the Day states:

His detailed paintings feature large urban spheres that appear to hovering above the remnants of a lost or deteriorating human civilization.

Sashie aims to give his city spheres a fantastical “old Japan” look, mixing elements of post-WWII Japanese architecture with fantasy or science fiction.

I find Masakatsu’s art to be very powerful, amazingly creative, and richly thought provoking.

Happy Coloring!
