Keita Morimoto’s “Into the Wild” Series

by Nastia VoynovskayaPosted on

In his oil paintings, Toronto-based artist Keita Morimoto takes us into a cool, mystical lagoon populated by nude youths that appear to exist in a timeless oasis. As the we venture deeper into the night, Morimoto’s brushstrokes go from sharply-focused to hazy. Lounging bodies become enigmatic, our gaze intrusive, as a contrasting color palette illuminates pallid skin tones wit a moonlit glow. Take a look at some of the paintings below, images courtesy of Keita Morimoto.
