KAZUKI
TAKAMATSU

Sensual hologram-like works of art

Stacks Image 4594

Japanese artist Kazuki Takamatsu famously creates hologram-like works of art. Kazuki was born in Sendai, Miyagi in 1978. Influenced by media and subculture growing up, he attended the Department of Oil Painting at Tohoku University of Art & Design and graduated in 2001.

Takamatsu’s haunting monochrome imagery explores narratives of death and society, through a unique depth-mapping technique that he developed and mastered, in which classic mediums such as drawing, airbrush and gouache painting are combined with computer graphics.

Takamatsu creates the original idea using 3D software and then meticulously recreates it by hand. The final results are haunting nymph-like girls that seem to float of the jet-black backgrounds like sensual ghosts.
