Masakatsu Sashie is a Japanese painter from Kanazawa.
His detailed paintings feature large urban spheres that appear to hovering above the remnants of a lost or deteriorating human civilization.
Sashie aims to give his city spheres a fantastical “old Japan” look, mixing elements of post-WWII Japanese architecture with fantasy or science fiction.
