“A Kiss with You” is an alluring piece of artwork created by Japanese artist Kansuke Akaike using intricate stencils and an airbrush with acrylic paint. This piece features a hand-painted heart background in addition to the stencil art. 

He started his ‘Stay home art project’ in April, 2020 where he has been posting portraits of celebrities requested by his Instagram followers. He says “I want to create artworks through this project that can be a source of emotional support for people staying at home right now”.

“A Kiss with You” was created with the same motivation as ‘Stay home art project’ with a focus on the importance of interaction in the era of the coronavirus pandemic. The farewell kiss from the girl depicted in the art piece reminds us once again of the preciousness of interaction.

Whether your opponent is a human, an animal or an extraterrestrial, emotions are only experienced after meaningful interactions. We hope that Kansuke’s works of art will bring some comfort into your life.
