Japanese Artist Nobuhiro Nakanishi Creates Fantastic Layered Drawings

The passage of time affects everybody but rarely do we reflect on what this means. Japanese artist Nobuhiro Nakanishi created a series of artwork which does exactly that.

The Layer Drawings is a collection of images taken over a period of time on subjects ranging from the natural world to mundane everyday events. These images are printed onto transparent film which are then arranged next to each other on their sides so that viewers can see through them. This creates a poetic effect of events unfolding in front of your eyes, albeit with spaces in between, inviting viewers to fill in the gaps with their imagination. An inspiringly beautiful and contemplative work of art.
