If you've followed my threads, I tend to post works from very talented modelers/artists. I've found another.

Satoshi Araki is an artist worth noting, not for his use of odd materials, but for his emphasis on teeny tiny details. The 45-year old Tokyo-based artist makes a living by crafting miniature models of towns, cars, bicycles and almost anything. But his specialty seems to be chaotic cityscapes that are the result of urban decay or warfare.

For the most part, Araki uses Styrofoam board, which he cuts, paints and glues together to create convincing dioramas. Every detail is accounted for, including the small lettering on the aluminum cans. Enjoy!

You know where he got those little, tiny cans from??

Minisoda.... yeah... I know.

Those are amazing!! A lot of detail crammed into such a tiny space. Thank you for sharing them! I love this kind of stuff.

The Vespa and the Cinquecento are my favorite two, parts of those are little snippets of an Italy that I have seen too, he must have been there himself.

The guy is a master of his art.

Agreed. I would love to have him do a diorama of just an old barn in a field. It would remind me of home back in Ohio.

Amazing and wonderful. Meticulous I can't imagine the work involved, or the patience. Thanks for bringing this to us.

I enjoy art, and since you said you post it, I friended you so I would know when you did. Hope you don't mind.

thanks for your posting of Mr. Araki's miniature works.

Here's a link to his website: goodsparkgarage.com...
Including a photo of his work bench.

Cinquecento? I don't think so.

The closest thing to a Fiat 500 in these pics would be the Austin Mini.

Haha! Cool!! My 36th scale Losi Micro RC would fit right in!

Maybe I should try and make a 'landscape' for it

I'm calling hoax. This is really a giant who's helping someone with their recyclables.

That must be a very time consuming hobby, to work in all those little details into the miniatures and make it all look real, not sure what his obsession with such scenes are, but hey he is good at it. There is even a picture on his facebook of him with the bike form Akira anime, and a bunch of different other model toys he has, even what looks like a mini pikachu that has seen better days.
