Taisuke Mohri’s Latest ‘Extra-real’ Graphite Drawings

by CaroPosted on

Taisuke Mohri has been drawing since his teens, eventually leading him to study industrial design. It should come as no surprise that he specialized in the design of elaborate objects with visual patterns, elements he now adapts in his drawing work. We previously featured Mohri’s realistic pencil renderings of mysterious young people on our blog. He has said that he finds it disturbing when something appears too perfect or real. Mohri’s latest works intend to interrupt “perfect” people and creations in nature with smudges and cracks. With a touch of surrealism, they aren’t quite “hyper-realism”; Mohri prefers to simply call them “extra-real.” At Positions Art Fair in Berlin, Germany last weekend, the artist exhibited new portraits of haunting subjects and a series of roses, overlaid with a pane of cracked glass. Take a look at some of Taisuke Mohri’s new works below, courtesy of the artist.
