Mechanical Mirage | Brain tower
Born in Hyogo, Japan in 1961, Kazuhiko Nakamura work was greatly influenced early on by surrealism and cyberpunk styles of art. As one reviewer commented, “Kazuhiko Nakamura’s art is a surreal hybrid of man and machine, a hard marriage of metal and flesh.”
Short Film: A flock of roosting crows are threatened by the advancing shadows of dusk. With the help of the Raven Chief they take a piece of the sun to save themselves from the darkness and share the light with the night sky as stars. Beautifully hand drawn and painted onto cells, then filmed using a multi-plane and paint on glass. For anyone who appreciates creativity or myth.
