Japanese artist Ikeda Manabu creates wonderful, highly detailed artwork. The intricate images are steeped both in reality and fantasy. A mix of traditional Japanese paintings and life-like still art can be seen to influence Ikeda Manabu’s art.

Working with pen and acrylic ink on paper that is mounted on board, Ikeda Manabu manages to transport viewers into another world, a world where insects are made of flowers, cities are stacked upon one another and nature rules.
