Inspired by the Japanesegardens and their architecture, amazed by the cleanliness and beauty they have, we took all the references that we collected for a while, and we tried to make our interpretation of this.
The “Japanese Garden” series combines classical elements of Japanese architecture with stylized flora to create scenes that perfectly capture the culture’s desire for simplicity. Portraying the minimal, surreal, and tranquil atmosphere of Japan, we tried to carry a consistent design language throughout each image using elements such as perfectly pruned trees, birch wood accents, and overcast mountain landscapes. The result was these surreal and pleasant compositions surrounded by green and nature.
