IMAI ATSUSHI


My colored pencil works aim to capture a surreal representation on the theme of female sexuality and seduction. Alluring women are portrayed at intimate and imaginary moments.


Fragments of a dreamed sketchbook

I also seek to depict urban European landscapes with my pencil drawings.
All my artworks try to capture different aspects of Japanese women culture: such as fashion, gestures and makeup.

About my urban scenes, though I’m drawing architectures that remind to European cities, what I’m really looking for is to reproduce an anime setting. Possible sceneries in which my characters would live their stories.

I worked as an illustrator since the age of 16, and I have always been interested for painting.

Nowadays I’m dedicated to fan art, character design and fantasy illustrations.

I have participated in different international art fairs and publications, showing around the world my particular insight about anime drawing style.
