Tokai no seiiki (Urban Sanctuary)


The theme this year is ‘a Japanese scene’, so I decided to create an image of ‘a shrine, standing quietly in the shadow of tall buildings’. Combining the traditional scenery of the old Japan with modern office buildings, this coexistence of old and new was also apparent in the work I submitted last year and is something that I feel defines the ‘Japanese landscape’.
In order to introduce a point of interest into the illustration, I have added a young girl Tengu using a smartphone. I believe that the old demons have not disappeared from the world, and despite their grumblings, they enjoy contemporary life.
