Artist Oscar Oiwa showcases his incredibly detailed work as a 360-degree drawing installation, which is dubbed 'Paradise' and hosted by the Japan House in São Paul, Brazil. Truly mesmerizing in appearance and identity, the piece required 120 markers, an inflatable dome and a lot of artistic labor.

The 360-degree drawing installation is striking through visual appeal alone. However, the Brazil-born artist injected it with heavy symbolic narratives. Oscar Oiwa took a culturally explorative approach to his detailed work. Drawing on his Japanese heritage and traditions, the artist infused vivid imagery of "contemporary manga, [...] Western impressionism and science fiction film."

Overtly stunning, the 360-degree drawing installation is definitely a must-see for locals and people traveling to Brazil.
