Tokyo is one of the biggest cities in the world, and every night it glows with thousands of lights, illuminating the skyline in bright colors. Artist Yukino Ohmura was inspired by this shining metropolis, recreating it with thousands of stickers.

Ohmura used cheap, tiny circular stickers that could be bought at any stationary store, typically used in offices or schools. The stickers are placed on black acrylic and the picture takes between two and three weeks to complete. The Tokyo native chose familiar sights because she wanted the viewer to connect with them on a deeper, more personal level.

Even images of a lit-up Tokyo are nothing new, the artist’s interpretation adds new meaning to the nighttime landscape:

Stickers are inexpensive, which I feel creates an interesting contrast by expressing the glamour of the nighttime city through cheap material.
