Mojo Wang Paints Strange Subjects with Similar Hairdos

Mojo Wang has a peculiar artist name, but that’s perfectly apt as his illustrations are equally strange and provocative. His latest offerings have him depicting bizarre people with mushroom haircuts that are hell-bent on covering their eyes with their hands. Their contorted bodies and oddly serene facial expressions invokes a rather unnerving viewing experience for audiences, but the sheer brilliance of the colors and execution of the pieces ensures that people can’t keep their eyes off these illustrations. It’s a series that’s strangely beautiful.

For those unfamiliar with Mojo Wang, he is a Shanghai-based artist with a portfolio full of odd images. It would be easy to describe his work as being similar to the visuals found in Asian horror films, but there’s a sense of ease and welcoming that viewers get while looking at his creations, making that classification inaccurate.
