These pen and ink illustrations by Elias Aquino depict a range of dark and morbid visual themes that range from grief to life and death. Capturing skeletons, skulls and ghostly human figures, the visual artist creates black and white images that are displayed within oval-shaped frame vignettes.

Illustrator Elias Aquino explores cultural symbols and examines a wide variety of superstitions surrounding life and death in his morbid yet striking pen and ink image series.

Resembling retro tattoo artworks, these stunning illustrations stand out thanks to their monochromatic palette and striking subject matter. The artist creates a series of intricately detailed art works that reveal an unexpected sense of beauty despite of their dark and grim subject matter.
