At first glance, this artwork seems to exude childlike qualities, and yet, after more in-depth observation, it is clear that these illustrations by Ai Shinohara are far from juvenile. In fact, I may even say that each of these amazing pieces of artwork have strikingly morbid undertones.
From blood-dripping iv's to flesh-eating fishes, each of these illustrations by Japanese artist Ai Shinohara have surprising morbidity. The refreshingly evil vs. innocence convergence within each of these works of art makes Ai Shinohara an interesting artist to observe.
Implications - The combination between dark and light, morbid and childlike and innocent and evil have all proven to be highly alluring and entertaining to consumers. Eye-catching compilations of opposing themes can make any product seem more dynamic and unique.
