Osamu Sato is a japanese artist known for his psychedelic and captivating illustrations and music pieces, used most notably in the experimental video game LSD: Dream Emulator. However, another very striking work of his is the book “The Art of Computer Designing: A Black and White Approach,” released in 1993. This is a collection of art pieces in black and white meant to showcase the artistic possibilities of using digital media as a canvas.
