40 Powerful Illustrations By Japanese Artist That Will Make You Think (New Pics)

The Japanese illustrator known as Avogado6 uses the language everyone understands—and that is no language at all. It’s probably because the delicate topics and complex emotions he conveys are too difficult to describe with words, so this artist chooses thought-provoking visual stories in his unique style. Most of his illustrations are like pills, each containing the flaws of our society and mental struggles. And I must admit, some of them are really hard to swallow. His emotion-fueled, dark, and disturbing illustrations talk about things you wish no one relates to; however, it’s a pretty accurate, yet haunting, depiction of the depths of our world.

Delicate Metal Dandelion Sculptures Capture the Weightless Beauty of the Weeds

Did you ever blow on dandelions as a child? The sight of their fluffy seeds floating in the air is one of life’s simple pleasures and has inspired Japanese artist Shota Suzuki. The Kyoto-based creative pays homage to the humble dandelion with his incredible metal sculptures.

Weeds such as dandelions are often considered undesirable in a garden, but Suzuki hopes his sculptures will encourage people to appreciate the “plants on the roadside.” To begin, the artist walks around his neighborhood in search of the weeds in yards or sidewalk cracks. He then heads back to his studio to begin recreating the delicate botanicals in metal. Suzuki captures their underrated beauty by sculpting their stems, flowers, buds, and even their tiny seeds from brass, copper, and

Suzuki begins each piece by cutting out the shapes from a metal plate before using a hammer and a chisel to add realistic texture. His metal leaves feature thin veins, and petals appear to delicately curl up at the ends. Even the tiny seeds look as though they could float away. Depending on the sculpture’s final design, more than a hundred individual metal parts are brazed and assembled.

Suzuki colors his sculptures using chemical processes such as rusting, sulfurization, and oxidation. He also creates patinas that are traditional in Japan, such as tanpan coloring and niiro, which traditionally uses daikon juices to alter the metal. The results create elements that look just like their real counterparts. Each tarnished and textured leaf and stem features a rich array of natural hues, as well as subtle golden accents.

Suzuki doesn’t only create dandelion sculptures; he produces all kinds of botanicals in metal. “I am more interested in the state of plants that change and live every day in nature than in the appearance of plants themselves,” he tells My Modern Met. “Flowers bloom, and from full bloom, they quickly bud, leaf, color, and wither. When the wind blows, the stems sway and dance, and petals and dead leaves dance in the air like circuses.” The artist adds, “The ever-changing appearance of nature is not the same as an instant, it’s very beautiful, therefore I am impressed with the mysteries of life.”

Stunning Illuminating Glass Sculptures By Japanese Artist Rui Sasaki

Rui Sasaki is a Japanese artist who creates breathtaking glass sculptures for over 15 years now. The artist has created many impressive sculptures throughout the years, and one of the most impressive ones has to be her Liquid Sunshine installation: a series of phosphorescent glass bubbles that illuminate light as a visitor enters the room.

When creating this installation, the artist asked herself “How can I visualize sunshine in glass?”. Rui was interested in using phosphorescent glass to capture sunlight, as she did not get much of it in Toyama. “Living in a cloudy environment helped me realize how vital sunshine is for me both mentally and physically,” explained the artist. Each of the bubbles is charged using a solarium light that shuts off as soon as a visitor enters the room, leaving only the glass orbs to light up the place. The space then slowly gets darker as the light slowly diminishes.

Japanese Artist Fills In Their Anime-Inspired Cutouts With Their Surroundings (100 Pics)

This Japanese artist creates paper cutouts that they then fill in using landscapes and the environment around them. The artist named Kotetsu especially enjoys nature backgrounds, but we can also see many architectural designs. Kotetsu’s characters are anime-inspired and they come to life and are filled with color by the many backgrounds the artist uses for them. Pencils or pens would probably not be able to imitate that.

This Japanese Artist Makes Sculptures Out Of Snow, And Here Are 30 Of The Coolest Ones

Winter is often associated with snow—whether you live in warmer climates or have to struggle with the cold for a better part of the year, snowflakes likely remind you of the brilliant white winter. And while some see the beauty of the season, others find a unique opportunity to show off their creative side.

Of course, we’re talking about the elusive art of snow sculpting. Probably everyone has built a snowman at least once in their life—there’s something inherently fascinating about taking a fluid material and creating something concrete and, frankly, fun! However, as with many things, there are professionals next to whom our snowmen look like stickmen in front of the Mona Lisa.

That’s exactly the case with this Twitter user whose works became viral. The user going by the name of @mokomoko_2015, a self-proclaimed snowman artisan, showcased their talent by making beautiful snow sculptures inspired by various fandoms, including Pokemon and Ghibli. There’s even a Godzilla or two!
