   The art of Japanese manga artist & illustrator Shintaro Kago is a bizarre marriage between the cerebral, logic-defying labyrinths of MC Escher & the brutally shocking ero-guro masterpieces of Toshio Saeki. He is a uniquely original creative force, freely venturing out to the twisted & unpredictable fringes of our collective unconscious via narrative, drawing & short art videos.

ARTIST:  Mr. Misang 미상씨 ( via:
   Mr. Misang is a Korean illustrator who constantly criticizes the overstimulated, overcrowded, total gluttony of modern urban life by over-stuffing his artworks with signs, symbols, machinery & pop culture references. He creates visual cacophony reflecting the oppressive emotional effects of living in South Korea, which is like a corporate culture pressure cooker because of it's relatively small size & rapid rise to the upper tier of the global market economy. Despite this, JuYong gets hired by numerous magazines & brands to illustrate posters, covers, animations, etc.
