Daichi Sato paints nostalgic and surrealistic scenes which are inspired by images randomly found on the internet, casual photographs and stories heard from his acquaintances. By adding some imaginary objects to the original surroundings, the images he creates engender a timeless and universal atmosphere thus familiar to everyone, and waver between reality and fantasy. 


Daichi Sato was born in 1985 and currently based in Okinawa, Japan. Sato graduated from Okinawa Prefectural University of Arts in 2009.


Sato has extensive experience in residencies and art festivals, both in Japan and abroad. His works have been shown in various venues, such as the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Art.
