KAGAYA et al. - Dream Mediators



A reputed world forerunner of Digital Painting, Kagaya works completed entirely on a computer. Since he spent his childhood in wonderment of the stars in the sky, he has been working in Astronomy-related areas, contributing many astronomical illustrations to books, magazines, and planetariums. Having his eternal motif in the grandeur of the cosmic world, he has had a successful career as an illustrator for astronomical books and magazines, and many of his works have been turned into jigsaw puzzles, among other products.

While stars are drawn just as they really are, nevertheless, images are fantastic and inspiring, by virtue of his Hyper Realism and his Celestial Transparency.

He has strong popularity in Asia. "The Zodiac, 12 Greek Mythologies" is a best-selling jigsaw puzzle. The minor planet 11949 is named Kagaya Yutaka after his real name in honor of his contribution to astronomy as an artist.
