“Mathilda with a Plant (stars)” is a fascinating piece of artwork created by Japanese artist Kansuke Akaike using intricate stencils and an airbrush with acrylic paint. This piece features a hand-painted star background in addition to the stencil art.
Kansuke started his project “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”.
“Mathilda with a Plant (stars)” was created with the same motivation as “Stay Home Art Project”. The girl depicted in the art piece is put in a situation where she must stay at home like we did. She tries to stay positive by believing in the coming of a bright future with her strong heart. We hope that Kansuke’s works of art will bring positive emotions into your lives.
