Takato Yamamoto and Heisei Esthiticism

Takato Yamamoto is a Japanese artist whose work I love. His self titled style is called “Heisei Esthiticism”. 

"My basic theme is the image of the universe operation that has repeated the circulating generation (life) and dismantlement (death)."

The textures, intricacy, subjects, colours... they inspire me to add more depth of tone to my own imagery. His work and story are generally quite interesting: check out the interview.
