Daisuke Tajima has created paintings of extremely detailed and intricate cities. Each is positioned from a bird's eye view, as if you were flying over the city. Although these images look realistic, they are in fact entirely fictional skylines imagined by Tajima.

Tajima's goal is for viewers to get lost in his art. The detail in each building, rooftop and facade gives the impression that he has recreated something that exists in the world. Tajima is able to incorporate interesting images of pipes and machineries that many artists would most likely neglect. The repetitive technique used throughout each piece creates a sense of claustrophobia, ultimately creating an uncomfortably busy feeling. Tajima however creates his little worlds as a place to escape, feel comfortable and controlled.
