Japanese Illustrator Gives Thought-Provoking Chills With Haunting Artwork

Japanese illustrator Avogado6 doesn’t offer much of a description of himself in his Twitter profile, simply stating that “I’m an ordinary person who likes chemistry. I create video works,” but one look at his thought-provoking artwork reveals that his interests run far deeper than that.

The talented artist’s illustrations often seem simple at first glance, but offer a poignant exploration of complicated mental and social issues, such as the debilitating nature of depression and a reliance on technology.

Recently, Avogado6’s works also include a recurring pair of a grim reaper character and the angelic ghost of a deceased child who seem to be exploring the afterlife together.
