This is Nagato Iwasaki. He's a Japanese artist who has gained attention lately for his driftwood sculptures.
In particular, Iwasaki has become known for his sculptures of humans made out of driftwood. And they are incredibly haunting.
Iwasaki's sculptures resemble what someone might look like without any skin. These four almost look like a robot boy band about to do a dance routine.
The attention to detail that went into each sculpture is breathtaking. These two look like they could be hanging out at a nude beach. Except they took the "nude" part a bit too far.
Iwasaki's sculptures are hard to forget once you've seen them. Which explains why he's part of so many exhibits in Japan and other parts of the world.
Iwasaki stated that this exhibit was at the Echigo-Tsumari Art Triennale 2000. And if this was just a regular tunnel and not an exhibit, you'd be pretty freaked out while walking through it.
This one looks like it could have been made out of many tiny swords. But like the others, it's made entirely out of driftwood.
Iwasaki's art has earned him many awards over the years. In 2014, he won the Yamanashi Prefectural Museum Awards Grand Prize.
Also in 2014, he won the Kirin Contemporary Art Award Special Jury Prize. And it's easy to understand why.
Iwasaki doesn't just stick with driftwood sculptures. His drawings are just as interesting. For instance, what exactly is happening in this picture? Is it a pterodactyl with a lava lamp?
The color and imagery of this drawing is particularly striking. You could probably stare at it for hours and still find new things about it.
