Daisuke Tajima's Meticulously-Rendered, Aerial Cityscapes
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. The detailed characters and interactions of his drawings, though, are quite compelling and cut closer to his manga-influenced style.
Tajima says about his work, “I wanted to hide away in my own world to ease the loneliness and insecurity I felt from not belonging. This piece is a world I can believe in.”
