Toru Izumida creates digital art collages that are surprisingly beautiful in their aesthetic. Inspired by modern technology, the Japanese artist's vivid compositions are conceived with the use of computer graphics. These singular fragments are captured from a number of different web platforms and stitched together into layered canvases.

Many have described the screenshot as a "modern archival tool" and can even credit it as the inspiration behind popular mobile apps like Snapchat. Turning Mac layouts into patterned collages, Toru Izumida creates lined and textural art that appears incredibly detailed and visually striking.

His digital art collages are colorful, vivid and conceptual, often fusing galactic and celestial imagery with photo fragments of the human body or botanical motifs.
