Uetsuji Shotaro Draws Dream-Like Visions Of Alien Encounters And Ghostly Visitations [Art]

The unexpected is the norm in Uetsuji Shotaro‘s beautifully bizarre illustrations, where whales and sharks sail through the skies, rooms are lit by the glow of pink mushrooms, ghosts and octopodes turn up everywhere, and 3D glasses reveal the unseen horrors of the universe.

Shotaro’s works blend Japanese culture with Western mythology, stylized reinterpretations of Latin American ruins, ’70s cartoons and the occasional touch of Edward Gorey. Taken together, many of his images seem to illustrate a single narrative, about the strange creatures encountered by a boy thanks to his marvelous movie glasses.
