From Dark Dreams “In the City” 10F (53 x 45.5cm) Written by Teruo Yamakawa


This is a mysterious painting with a futuristic atmosphere. The black lines make it stand out and harmonize with futuristic elements.

This painting incorporates scientific elements and designs into a real-life cityscape.

The semi-abstract approach symbolizes exploration into unknown territory and can be said to stimulate the viewer's imagination.
