From Kanagawa, Japan
Lives and works in Berlin
In September 2018, Japanese artist Sadataka Anmi moved to Berlin on a mission to draw 1,000 people and capture its incredible diversity. To date he has drawn 186 people, showcasing a cross-section of society represented by different nationalities, religion and social status.
He says it’s a meaningful project for him as it’s very hard to achieve. “One thousand is just a number to aim for, which means it is not a goal in itself. The goal, for the purpose of this project, is to keep on drawing; it will never end. I will continue with this project for the rest of my life and this artwork will perpetually hold the status of ‘unfinished’,” he says.
