Student Artwork Update: Sachika Iwata

July 14th, 2016

We are pleased to present artwork by SVACE student Sachika Iwata, created  in conjunction with the course, Illustration Portfolio, taught by Elizabeth Sayles.

Illustration by Sachika Iwata

As described in her statement:

Sachika Iwata studied and worked as a graphic designer in Osaka, Japan. She traveled three years around the world that turned to be a life changing experience for her. While traveling, she was amazed by the beauty of the earth – the desert of the Middle East, frozen river of Tibet, palm tree forest in South India, and blue water of the Red sea. The experience of seeing places, meeting people, feeling the planet made her aware of the richness as well as the fragility of our environment.

Climate change, global warming, endangered animal, vanish species – these are the issues Sachika Iwata is very concerned about. Her recent artworks reflect her pain, sadness and hope for the future of our planet. Who will take care of this blue planet, if it is not us?

See Sachika’s work in our exhibition space at 209 East 23 Street until July 29!  Find more of her work at her website, Facebook, and Etsy pages.
