He creates not only colorful paintings, but in my opinion his best works are the embroidery ones. The patterns he creates are full of imagination, colours and small details!

Takashi Iwasaki draws above all geomatrical shapes but the perfect usage of empty spaces and colors combination, makes them full of life!

From his website: " Most of my recent works (after 2009) are either visual recording of my daily life or visualization of my imaginary worlds or landscapes that no one would see unless otherwise depicted; whereas my earlier works have been mostly focused on their formal qualities. Those recent works may appear to be abstract on the surface, however, most shapes and colors have meanings and origins that are very significant to me in the way I feel them, therefore they are very representational and are reflection of my state of mind. Things that I feel are never the same in the next moment because I keep changing. Capturing moments and sharing my visions with others have been my recent obsession and pleasure."

I'm in love with his visionary world and the "handmade" side of his works.
