Japan-based artist, Daisuke Tajima, vaulted out of art school last year on the tails of his highly successful thesis exhibition to win about $83,000 (10 million Yen) through the 2015 Tokyo Midtown Award. He paints, draws, creates manga and sculpts, but most notable are his paintings, which employ his visual understanding of architecture to create meticulous renderings of imaginary cityscapes.

Shinsekai's 'The New World Transparent Specimens' are tiny, usually aquatic life forms like fish and seahorses that are put through a process of chemical replacement of the proteins and dyeing of the bones. The result is a transparent creature that glows in eerie vibrant colors. The creatures are then sealed in vials filled with glycerin and preservatives.
