The amazing detailed pencil work that Taisuke Mohri displays with his cracked portraits is quite stunning. The pictures are a mix between hyper-realism and an abstract theme that when combined with the stark colors chosen, the images are quite haunting.
With such powerful imagery, the detailed pencil work makes the viewer question reality. Mohri achieves the cracked look, which he calls “material cracks,” by placing a pane over top of the finished drawings. The combination of two different mediums lends itself well to the surreal theme that Mohri is aiming to achieve.
The ability to create thought-provoking art that is also captivating is truly a case of extreme talent and creativity. Mohri is an exceptional artist who has the ability to really push the limits of art.
