Desert Space

Heavily inspired by the works of Japanese graphic artist, Yusuke Nakamura, Desert Space is entirely made up of assets taken from online, appropriated and then mashed up to create this unique scene. Nakamura creates complex works portraying multiple scenes within one frame, and I wanted to capture something similar. My multiple scenes would be sky, space, desert, and water. Every “scene” has its own set of assets and characters, like the scuba diver in the lake, or the camels crossing the desert, or the moon phases placed next to stars and nebulas. Every scene flows and merges rather naturally, and none overpower another, creating a balance of space.
