Japanese Modern Illustrator Shows Tokyo Invaded by Stricking Flora and Fauna
?Today we want to introduce you to the very interesting works of Hiromu Maruyama (Hiromu-maru), an illustrator from Japan. The first impression of his work can be described with the word “beautiful!”. The second, and deeper, more detailed look says “scary!” Beautiful and scary – scary beautiful?)
One art critic called his work “the violent destruction of the urban world with love.” And her vision has a right to exist.
The artist depicts modern Tokyo, overrun by the incredible flora and fauna. Moreover, if in some works people and amazing representatives of the animal (plant) world coexist quite harmoniously, in others there is a rather aggressive, apocalyptic invasion of one world into another.
The artist masterfully and strickingly conveys the ordinary objects as well as the phantasmagoric components of his work.
And here you begin to think about the well-known quote that beauty will save the world, and about the possible ways of this rescue.
Hiromu’s art shows us a new meaning of this statement.
