Keisuke Oda creates works of various tastes. But what is common in his art is a view of the world wrapped in kindness
influencing the heart of the beholder and a solid sketching ability. In this familiar yet fanciful world, people and animals
appear but are free from hustle and strife. In our present world, much distress and pessimism pervades but Oda draws a
world that heals the spirit. Furthermore, in some of his work, such as copper engraving, a story in a scene enlivens the
viewer’s imagination. Without being too descriptive, the artist allows the viewer to freely enjoy and appreciate what he
sees. Surely, if people can enrich their imagination, the world can be peaceful and be a better place to live in. Oda hopes
that with his art, he can contribute to this.
