Yasuto Sasada’s Drawings of Machine-Inspired Creatures

by CaroPosted on

Japanese artist Yasuto Sasada, just 27 years old, has already made a name for himself in the modern art and fashion world, through his collaborations with Yohji Yamamoto. Sasada has his own visual language that combines cultural traditions with the future. His detailed pen drawings of creatures mix motifs from modern technology and religion. Their black and white tonality, achieved with a thin 0.3mm pen,  is harshly contrasted against bright pink, blue, and green backgrounds. He’s created a new form of painting that juxtaposes old and contemporary ideas, taking us into an entirely new dimension. At his website, Sasada shares “My paintings purport to relay the concept of reviving life into living creatures through superb technology, or machines. I draw creatures ranging from tigers, toki (Japanese crested ibis), crayfish and many more… These creatures are revived, and re-start to breathe and regain their well-being. This is my message of “life” towards all living creatures.”
