Japanese artist Risa Mehmet states she draws her sad memories. Judging on the sad and creepy works in her portfolio she must have been through a lot of bad things in her life… It’s a good thing she dares to share those dark thoughts with us though, her work is absolutely astonishing. I probably don’t have to tell you anymore that light, pastel colour schemes and cute creatures with big eyes aren’t a guarantee for super sweet images, just look at Hikari Shimoda’s creepy portraits and you’ll see that even though the ingredients are sweet the outcome doesn’t have to be. Risa’s work is far from sweet or cute as well, her drawings are creepy, sad and disturbing – yet always intriguing. Enjoy!
Thanks for reading. What do you think of Risa’s work?
