All works created by Tetsuji Yamashita looks like its been created by computer graphics or paintings but its created by layering small pieces of papers.
Blue light turns black water surface into a rainbow.
Several crystals bounce off Keep away from the place where the lightning fell.
A flame that turns blue light into a rainbow.
The rhythm of life fades into the forest.
The moment to step into the divided world.
Blue rose turns into a crimson flower.
Eternal moment in the eyes.
Old memories that dwell in the heart
