Japanese artist Keita Sagaki’s intricate drawings of classical sculptures and figures are not what they appear to be. As you walk closer to the intricate drawings you’ll notice a sea of cartoonish and playful doodles that cover every inch of the drawing surface. These doodles not only differ greatly from the subject matter that you first see but they are continuously contracting and expanding to create the light and shadows in Sagaki’s pleasantly misleading drawings.

“All things are composed of whole and part. For instance, The human body is built from 60 trillion cells. Moreover, Every matter is formed by an atom or a molecule. When all people live in this world, everybody belong to some organization such as a family, school, company and nation, even if we are unconsciousness. Let’s broaden your horizons. Your country is part of nations all over the world. And, The solar system including our planet is a part of the Galaxy. However, the concept of “ whole and part” is not fixed. It’s in flux. If we interpret from a different viewpoint, the wholeness which we defined is converted into the partialness. Domain in the relations of both, it never ends. The concept of my creation is the relations of borderless “whole and part”. As I draw a picture in this concept, I want to express conflict and undulation from relations of “whole and part”, cannot be measured in addition and subtraction (The whole in the grand total of the part, and the Part by the whole division.)”
