While cycles, buses and whales fly, the moon calmly rests on water in Kouzou Sakai’s deeply mysterious and surreal world. Kouzou is a freelance illustrator based in Tokyo, Japan.
He has a special affinity towards all kinds of animals, birds, fishes, insects and plants since he was a child. And unsurprisingly, they often manage to scoop central roles to play in his work. He graduated from the Department of Animal Science and Biotechnology from his university, but eventually went on to work in design production before becoming a full-time illustrator.
In this interview, we talk to Kouzou about his interest in nature, his work for Haruki Murakami’s book and his personal projects, among other things. Read on: http://thefloatingmagazine.com/people-kouzou-sakai/
