Artist John Chae delves deep into a seemingly disturbed psyche with his digital illustrations. Colorfully labyrinthine and boldly gritty, his provocative images are full of pop culture references from The Power Rangers and Sailor Moon to cat memes and comic books. Odd and repetitive, John Chae's work hypnotizes his audience.

Born in Boulder, Colorado, raised in Seoul, South Korea and currently based in Jacksonville, Florida, John Chae certainly has quite the humor. His about page is almost as ambiguous as his illustrations as he divulges only that he was born in the year of the dragon, though is more like a rabbit, and has a blood type of B, but isn't sure if it is plus or minus.
