Artist: Takeshi Murata

Takeshi Murata is best known for creating digital art using video and computer animation techniques. From abstract distortion to representational animation, his work explores the possibilities that digital tools provide through the manipulation of color and form.

I really enjoy Murata’s work. Melter 2 reminds me of the paint scene in the film, The Pagemaster. The evolving sounds and colors prevent the viewer from looking away. I find the fluid movement in a lot of the videos soothing to watch. Murata’s dynamic animations blend real with the unreal.
