Japanese Miniature Model Artist, Satoshi Araki’s diorama art crafts are incredibly detailed and realistic. Especially, his expression of rotten, spoiled objects evokes feeling of nostalgia.
Araki sometimes puts a single finger into the frame to show the scale of the tiny scenes, which are sculpted in painstaking detail. His coke cans are smaller than a fingernail; his Vespa model is tiny enough to rest on your thumb.
Declaring himself “an omnivore modeler”, Satoshi has built quite a diverse collection of dioramas. He has rusty mopeds, which are bought as new and then skillfully converted into their photorealistic decrepit state. Robots from Japan’s favorite giant robot series, “Gundam,” make numerous appearances, because the average Japanese household holds three of them. Satoshi has also done World War II and wrecked street dioramas as well.
