Shintaro Ohata is a Japanese artist who creates stunning imagery using two different elements. He combines 3D sculptures with 2D paintings; making his illustrations an eye-popping exhibit.

Shintaro Ohata makes his paintings in a way that brings to life all of those everyday objects we often seem to look past. As the artist says to Yukari gallery, "Every ordinary scenery in our daily lives, such as the rising sun, the beauty of a sunset...becomes something irreplaceable if we think we wouldn’t be able to see them anymore."

If you've been missing the lustre of everyday life, take a look at these Shintaro Ohata paintings for a reminder that every day can be beautiful.

Implications - Consumers in the modern age are looking for products that will provide a quick escape. Items featuring a fantastical element are appealing to those who can't afford to actually take time off. In order to increase its appeal, a company could focus on this desire for a getaway when creating their designs.
