This colorfully morbid and creepy art is by Japanese artist Korehiko Hino. He depicts sickly inanimate facial expressions on the youth portraits that he paints.

He uses extremely stunning coloring for his work and combines it with the asylum-like subject matter. The signature eyes in all of his paintings give the portraits a zombified and desperately depressing outlook.

He also uses a lot of raw imagery such as meat and bloody taxidermy throughout his work. His arguably most disturbing one is of a child's face (or lack thereof) that looks absolutely destroyed, forefronting a gorgeous floral background. This horrifyingly morbid body of work is stunningly well-painted and undoubtedly unsettling.

Korehiko Hino is brilliant in his technique of combining oppositional moods in his pieces.
