The 'There Will Be No Survivors' Rich Tu portrait series is disturbingly drawn with a focus on violent subject matter that the artist displays in a simplistic way. From decapitated limbs to knife-wielding subjects, these disturbing portraits feature a modern and design-conscious aesthetic.

With clean line work and effortless gestures, Rich Tu creates a cartoonish black and white series of pen and ink illustrations. While some of these creepy compositions stand alone, others are paired with phrases like 'Holding it Down' featured on a piece with a beheaded woman and 'Self Medicate' accompanying a drawing that features a slit wrist.

Controversial and shocking, the 'There Will Be No Survivors' Rich Tu portrait series takes inspiration from an aesthetic often seen in street art and graphic novel storyboards.
