そうへい にしの

Japanese Artist, Sohei Nishino created dioramas of major cities conveying the places like dreams.

Currently living in Tokyo, Nishino’s work is on display at a forum for contemporary art, the Saatchi Gallery in London.

There’s a sense of something hidden within each shot of light jet print. I admired dioramas even more because they portray my favorite cities: Paris, Tokyo and New York. In the dioramas, the city’s aspirations and flaws are represented and entangled.

Almost as though the cities are invisible and imagination is necessary to decipher the image. Nishino composed a city of wonder with a creative sense of a map through his viewpoint and experience.
