Fuse by Anna Shimizu
Medium: Digital Illustration
"The theme of my artwork is "Fuse". This illustration suggests that virtual world and real life are closely connected, and it is fusing at this time of the decade. I use both digital and physical materials to make an artwork. I can see more and more people easily create things combining both experiences. As an artist, I always tend to see the physical world into digital structures. This artwork is coming from that experience. When I saw a great view of Toronto city from Riverdale Park, I started to imagine how I can make this view in digital. That kind of whole experience is emerging in our real life."
