Ei Kaneko is a Tokyo based artist who creates moody and disorienting portraits with graphite. It’s interesting how he uses fragments of images to create a new meaning. What that new meaning may be I’m not sure, but I love that piece at top which juxtaposes a detailed drawing of a skull with the frail figure of an androgynous person. I found an interesting article over on Art is Alive where he describes his work as “a void identity.” If these pieces interest you be sure to click here to read it. Also be sure to click the images to see them larger and to see more of the details.
