I really thought it was a CGI i was looking at. To my surprise these are gouache paintings. The artist Kasuki Takamatsu combined the traditional gouache with a modern technique called depth-mapping. A technique used in CGI to ensure that every pixel has another shade of the same colour proportionate to it's distance, thus creating a very convincing sense of depth. This is used in Pixar movies for example.
These paintings are full of contrast and deception. The white against the black. The old and new techniques. And most strikingly to me the innocent, dreamy, angelic, anime loli-like figures who are set in eerie, violent scenes.
Instead of wanting to be part of this dreamlike dimension, it pushes me way from it. Wanting to keep distance while completely fascinated by it.
