以身旁隨處可見的動植物作為創作的靈感,例如日本豐富多樣的風土或鄉村山林等景致為主題,對眼前的自然寄予強烈的想像與信息。2003年開始以「Biotop」為題材進行創作,「Biotop」是德語中的合成字,代表著自然環境,特別是由人類再構築的「生物棲息地」。磯部光太郎以日本畫家的身分所製作的「Biotop」日本畫中,利用日本特有的線條來表現佇留在流水邊的青蛙等,表現出動植物在四季的變換與感性的活力。另外,他作品的用紙是新潟縣柏崎市的門出和紙。

The theme of Isobe's works is "biotop," which is German for biotope, the space maintained by an original ecosystem. During every season of the year countless small creatures share the space inhabited by humans. A biotope is an environment in which humans, plants, and animals co-exist in an ideal way. In Japan, there still remain ideal environments for nature's small creatures to inhabit, with its rich natural features of satoyama woodland that are home to insects which visit flowers in swarms, as well as creatures such as frogs and dragonflies that inhabit ponds, rice paddies, and other wet areas. The seasonal changes of flora and fauna are sensitively portrayed by incorporating the traditional techniques of Japanese painting into the motifs of the small living creatures and plants that come together in these biotopes. Isobe is attracting attention as an up-and-coming young Japanese-style painter. Has actively held personal exhibitions and taken part in group exhibitions at department stores and galleries across Japan since around the year 2000.
