Shintaro Kago

Shintaro Kago is an elusive manga artist from Tokyo, Japan. However he is not your typical manga artist. While most manga artists draw simply what they are told to draw, Kago uses his distinct and creative style to depict extreme and graphic content. This style has come to be known as “fashionable paranoia” due to how he is depicting the paranoid mind in a popular art form (manga). While his artwork is frequently bizarre and grotesque, it tends to have a satirical edge that lightens up its mood. Shintaro Kago recently did the awesome album artwork for Flying Lotus’ new album You’re Dead! and is bound to keep making more stunning artwork for many years to come.
