The beautiful world of Shigeru Komatsuzaki

Shigeru Komatsuzaki (1915-2001) was an extraordinary Japanese artist, creating artwork for numerous (nowadays vintage) plastic model boxes. The paintings have that amazing mix of late 70’s, early 80’s technical achievement and the visionary approach of what the future could look like. Underwater cars, space colonies, pyramid shaped mega-buildings, robots fighting dinosaurs, it’s all there. All that’s left for us to do, is to be astounded by Komatsuzaki’s amazing work.
