Japanese artist Keisuke Tanaka carves whimsical sculptures out of large blocks of wood. Paying tribute to natural surroundings, the sculptor indulges his imagination and reverence for nature by creating scenes that are beautifully fantastical. Each and every one of Keisuke Tanaka's sculptures stretches up to the sky as though beckoning people to gaze up at them with the same love that it took to create them.

Incredibly detailed, Keisuke Tanaka's sculptures have been meticulously painted by hand. Interestingly enough, the fact that these masterpieces are made out of wood is pretty ironic. Representing beauty and destruction, it appears to follow a theme of beginnings and endings. Nevertheless, the idea of immortality also crops up since Keisuke Tanaka's work could potentially live on forever in galleries and museums.
