Art is an amazing practice that an artist pours his heart with his emotions out to create something aesthetically striking. A lot of artists have their own inspiration to create art, it might be a positive one or it might as well be a negative one as well. Whatever the inspiration is, it is the main flame that drives an artist to create more and more artistic work.
This is such a story that comes to us from Japan. One of the recent natural disasters in Japan, the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake is the inspiration for this artist. Manabu Ikeda who has seen his country go through a bad earthquake and then a tsunami, watched as it grew back up stronger than ever before. This inspired him to do one small task perfectly at a time to have collective success in the long run.

His art was a 13×10ft piece which was a drawing done with just pen & ink. Ikeda has worked on this 6 days a week nonstop starting from 2013 to finish this around 3.5 years after. His precision and consistency did not fade away along the course of these years. He had his inspiration at heart all along, just how his country built itself back up, Ikeda made his work flawless to be rewarded with a perfect piece of art years later.
Since he used pen and ink, he was able to create very small details all over this piece of art. That is what he always wanted, to see every detail where ever he looked in a piece of art. Scroll down to check out his work.
