Naritaka Satoh(b. 1980) is skilled in using pencils and charcoal pencils. He possesses the precise techniques and a firm will, and through the pencil, he is able to transform the image into an artwork as if it is an actual photo. To achieve a come-alive and realistic touch, he first uses thin strokes to accurately make out the figure. He then uses the combination of it with acrylic paint to express its abstract components by repeatedly and generously applying colors to the piece. Due to the strong contrast that forms, audiences may feel a sense of incoherence at first glance. However, as you study and look past the surface, you may, in fact, find that the chaos work in harmony, almost as if they were arranged in an orderly manner on the canvas.
