Dream Catcher: The Fanciful Art of Natsuo Ikegami

Forest In FebruaryNatsuo Ikegami is an artist from Osaka, Japan whose enchanting work I recently discovered. Her art, with it’s strong suggestions of surrealism channeled through a bit of soothing whimsy, express the artist’s personal state of mind and dreams which are inspired by experiences in daily life. The strong art speaks for itself, but interestingly enough, I could find very little biographical information on Natsuo Ikegami. Times like these call for less words and more art, so ladies and gentlemen, presenting the quixotic art of Natsuo Ikegami.

    It seems like her work has a gentle, peaceful nature without being too sweet and syrupy.

  3. Hi, Stephen. “Forest in February” isn’t really what this painting is about, I don’t think (and I’m beginning to wonder if the others have some sort of submerged codes or meanings too, now). It looks to me like “Babe(s) in the Woods,” if you see what I mean!

    Oh wow, these are so beautiful! I love the dreamlike soft colors and imagery. The little snail is my favorite 🙂 I have a thing for snails lately.
