About the artist:
The detailed and slightly absurd works by Masaaki Sugita’s are reminiscent of the works of Salvador Dali and Alice in Wonderland-esque fairy tales. In his prints, Sugita travels into a feverish yet beautiful dream landscape where the disturbed and the subconscious mingle to create a fascinating tale. Sugita uses one of the oldest technique of printmaking- copper engraving with burin, a historical factor that is evident in his terrific technique and defined expression.
