Takeshi creates powerful images with an emphasis on composition and colour to create beautiful vignettes of everyday life in urban Japan. Combining the hand-drawn and digital, his smoothly tactile explorations into people and the built environment often evoke a sense of quiet and calm though highly detailed shading and perspective. Takeshi’s work currently features across the publishing, editorial and advertising industries and has won him a Tokyo Illustrators Society award.


With the painterly moodiness of Edward Hopper and the soft colours of David Hockney, Japanese illustrator Takeshi Miyasaka creates powerful images of people and their relationship with urban architecture.
