Using countless transparent layers of gouache, Japanese artist Kazuki Takamatsu (featured in Hi-Fructose Vol. 16) creates paintings that mimic 3D depth mapping technology. Takamatsu executes this holograph-like effect entirely by hand, giving his viewers a glimpse into an illusory world populated by ghostly, Lolita-esque figures. Takamatsu recently opened his solo show, “Japanese Ideology of Puberty,” at Culver City’s Corey Helford Gallery.
Everyone: Look at Kazuki Takamatsu’s work. Do it. Do it. DO IT NOW.
