Japanese teacher uses his blackboard as canvas for amazing art

In Japan, art teacher Hirotaka Hamasaki uses blackboards not only as an educational tool, but also as a canvas.

Hamasaki started drawing on blackboards after his students asked that he make them a farewell greeting for graduation. He made them an illustration of The Little Mermaid, and soon, he followed it up with works recreating iconic paintings like da Vinci’s The Last Supper and Hokusai’s The Great Wave Off Kanagawa.

Hamasaki’s work recently made headlines after he illustrated a still from the anime film Kimi no Na Wa (Your Name).
