Maddeningly Drawings With Scribbled Doodles And Goofy Characters From Sagaki Keita

The obsessional visual impact of Mandala has now become the core of my expression, Japanese artist Sagaki Keita said.

When I was young, I was greatly moved by the Mandala that my father took me to see. The extremely elaborate depictions, the rich psychedelic colors, the fractal design with countless Buddhas of various sizes arranged within, and the almost hellish image burned itself into my head like a trauma.

The obsessional visual impact of Mandala has now become the core of my expression, Japanese artist Sagaki Keita said. He recently updated his portfolio with a number of new works from 2012.

Keita creates composite pen and ink illustrations using thousands of densely scribbled doodles, goofy characters seemingly born from the margins of notebook paper that then form everything from Roman statues to artworks from pop culture.

The human sense of value and beauty is uncertain, changeable and easily affected by assumption and bias. I wish to unsettle the values of such viewers through my works.
