Some artists stand out more than others throughout the ages and I would not be surprised if this one is part of them. Manabu Ikeda, Japanese artist dedicated 10 hours a day, 6 days a week for a total of 3 1/2 years of his life to realize an epic work, "The Rebirth". A large work of 3.9 meters by 3 meters and intended to exorcise the problems caused by the 2011 earthquake on the Pacific coast of Tōhoku.

But it is not the time he took that is the most impressive ... The most impressive is that he realized his work, with a quill! You have read right, a quill, the one dipped in pots of colored ink... Could you imagine the patience of a master that you'd need? It is easy to imagine that this work will be "the work of his life."

And it is no coincidence that the first thing that comes to your eye when you look at his work is the tree rising in the midst of the debris. All around, you will see animals and plants that seem to sail between the waves of a tsunami in search of a new form of life, tranquil and in peace. That is the message he is trying to bring. "My goal is to express my vision of the world sincerely through my work, but I do not necessarily portray all the details that make up my work intentionally" said Manabu.

As for his very particular technique of work, he explains: "Because I want to be able to see the details when I observe things, I find that the pen and ink are the best tools for allowing me to express how I perceive these details."
