Photorealistic Still Life with Something “Wrong”

Drawing by Tatsuya Erikawa

Artist Tatsuya Erikawa carefully constructs realities through painstakingly-rendered drawings. Created in a photorealistic style, they depict still lifes with objects arranged slightly askew. A tiny skeleton takes a bath in festively-decorated glass, while army men set a curious mouse trap. Erikawa’s awe-inspiring technical abilities are highlighted by the strange situations, and their realism makes them seem as though they could truly exist.
