Hino Korehiko’s oil paintings may seem to be cute at first glance. But take a second look and you might have nightmares later tonight. These pastel portraits feature flowers, jewels, underwear clad men, and other pretty things. But each person has bizarrely large eyes. And the figures are strangely sexless. I though I was looking at a cute boy and girl, but on second glance I noticed that they both have the same form.
