Seikou Yamaoka: Finger Painting Extraordinaire

Seikou Yamaoka is probably the world’s most proactive commuter. Using the app Art Studio, the Japanese artist uses his fingertips to create detailed, digital masterpieces on his way to work. Each piece takes him roughly 4-5 hours to complete (that’s one long commute) and the results are utterly stunning. However, it’s the artistic process that’s truly mesmerising as Yamaoka sketches the first layer in black and white to create shade and depth before adding colour to complete the piece. It looks like paint-brushes may soon find themselves redundant…
