In an age where digital art is championing print and graphic arts, it seems that traditional mediums have lost their prominence in media.  Yet there are still artists that have an affinity for both platforms an the kinds of cross-creative production that results in the application of both.  Japanese artist, Kazuki Takamatsu is one of them.  Clearly influenced by 3-dimensional vector and gradient work the works as well as Japanese graphic archetypes, what you see before you isn't digital it’s gouache.  The works are haunting images of lucid eroticized Manga characters rendered in a way that strips them of their humanity.  The figures in Takamatsu’s work are mannequin-like and it is as if they have left their digital realm for the first time experiencing the freedom of vice.
