Shusaku Takaoka Juxtaposes Pop Culture with Classical Art for Satire.

Shusaku Takaoka is a Japanese graphic designer author of these witty and surprising illustrations. The artist is inspired by our modern society to juxtapose visuals who form a funny set and sometimes denouncing aspects of an ultra-consumer and over-connected world.

Mixed media art is something that fascinates us, because it leaves so much opportunity to see the old blend with the new.

Shusaku Takaoka, is taking this idea to a whole new level with their graphic design artwork that combines classic works of art with modern day photography and pop culture.

Opinions on the art could very easily clash due to some seeing it as an insult to the original pieces, while others praise the artist for their innovation.

On top of that, the stark contrast in certain pictures brings about the harsh realities of the differences between what was and what is now.

Characters from fairy tales, paintings, frescoes, but also VIPs, brands, and supermodels. Shusaku Takaoka blends profane and sacred, worldly and classic.

Shusaku doesn’t save anything, sacred images, works of art, celebrities, politicians, cartoons, the Japanese artist takes all this, mixes it together and posts the result on the web.
He enjoys upsetting everything we know.

Artists deserve respect. Even if it bothers you and you don't like their work; refrain from negative opinions, non-constructive remarks. Opt for an objective analysis of the work as well as a good understanding of the author's intentions..Thx
