Dreamy, Eerie Paintings Of Characters Inhabiting A Post-Apocalyptic World

Japanese artist Takahiro Hirabayashi creates incredibly dreamy, gorgeous portraits with a touch of the grotesque about them.

With their eyepatches, bloodstains and bullet wounds, his characters seem to have emerged from a post-apocalyptic world.

The combination of their morbid situations and delicate, angelic features gives them a thoroughly unsettling yet mesmerizing air; one feels unable to look away from them.
