Shota Maehara is a digital artist based in Nagoya, Japan. He creates realistic computer graphics and pursues simple artworks which have strong messages.

Human mind, Nature, Universe, Science-his expression always has a fundamental theme and shows it from a unique aspect.

Almost all artworks have its title which gives a new point of view to it. 

 

 

I explore the dichotomy audio and visual by my philosophy using 3DCG and my own music. – Shota Maehara –

 

 

After graduating SHOKUGEKI Design school in Japan in 2005, Shota started as a freelance production.

 

In the beginning, the main business line was audio engineering and he learned about composing and video editing at the same time.

 

After that, Shota started graphics and website production business and this grew to become my main business line.

My sources of inspiration are from trivial things in life…

 

What is your source of inspiration for your work?

My sources of inspiration are from trivial things in life, Human mind, Nature, Universe, and Science.

 

My journey is finding out the invisible part of things and just highlight it.

 

By doing so, I rediscover who we are in the process.

 

 

What kind of technology, technical or software do you use?

The software I use are  Photoshop, Illustrator, Cinema4d, Octane render, X particles, DAZ, Z-brush, etc.

In the 3D graphics world, it makes me possible to travel deep inside of me.

 

My creation process is finding out the target from there and just put a new perspective on it.

 

Then, the artwork will start to tell something by itself, I catch it, modify it, and give a title to it.

 

All creation process is a re-recognition of things and it would be a satire or an emotion and in some cases, it would contain experimental factor.

 

 

 Why can your work be a source of inspiration for others?

The artworks often tend to be a technical experiment in digital expression especially in 3D graphics, but I have been trying to get over it and focus on the message for a long time.

 

Recently, I have responses from many people around the world, and I hope I could sympathize and inspire through what I wanted to express.
