The work of Miki Saito at Wada Garou, Tokyo, is an exquisite example of the latter. Citing both Salvador Dali and sumi-e (ink-wash painting) master Yoshio Ikezaki as two of her major influences, the young artist captures in her work a rare combination of surreal whimsy and painstaking craftsmanship.
