Art In The Dark : Akira Kusaka

The other week I stumbled across a random image and saved it on my desktop so that I could, at a later date, dive into the depths of the internet and find out what I could about the artist behind the work. The piece of art which I saved was this…

Akira Kusaka

…and it was created by Akira Kusaka, an illustrator and graphic designer from Osaka, Japan, who has a knack for creating sublimely eerie scenes.

“The focus of Kusaka’s artwork exists somewhere just outside one’s line of vision. Though the subjects of his illustrations are often front and center; they appear to exist as part of a much larger, foggier, spookier world.” – Liah Paterson
