Artist: Junko Mizuno

So I don’t really know if Junko Mizuno is super well known to the masses or if her artwork is more underground but huge with  people in the know, but either way its insane. Junko’s artwork is another one of those types that crosses a mixture of cute and horrific. There is lots of color and cute girls with big eyes and flowy hair but at the same time the girls tend to be naked and carrying bloody chainsaws or syringes. It has that happy tree friends kind of vibe, only not nearly as lame.

Junko Mizuno also has some of the coolest merchandise around from graphic novels, crazy action figures and even gruesome yet adorable versions of fairy tales like Hansel and Gretel and the Little Mermaid. If you are into low brow art her work will suddenly appear everywhere you look from magazine articles to tv shows Junko will overtake the world with her wicked coolness.
