anime inspired

Rintaro Mizuguchi is an artist who creates amine inspired figrines, or I should say monsters. The organic shapes were made by hand, amazingly with a hot glue gun. 


Some works were made on the boards to hung it on a wall as an ornament. Cool, isn't it?

history in 3D

The artist Atsushi Adachi is challenging to make history 3D, and WW2 is his latest theme. They look like just antique toys at a glance, but old Japanese newspaper was coverd on a Japanese fighter and American newspaper on the US bomber. Very unique but controversial art pieces.
