Miniature sculptures by Maico Akiba. Japanese artist Maico Akiba presented the series of works under the name «SEKAI», which means “peace”. In her miniature sculptures she embodies her dream, a desire to have her own little corner of comfort and peace. Main occupation of Maico Akiba – illustrating children’s books. In her creative work the artist remains childish, even when it comes to serious topics. Among the numerous art works of Maiko, the series «SEKAI» is the most personal. It was created in the past two years between illustration classes. The basis of her sculptures were animal figurines, then she applied layers of paint on them, creating “landscape”. All the small details, such as figurines of people and other objects Maiko has made with her hands.
