Nightmarish post-apocalyptic images you can’t turn away from

Russian artist Yuri Shwedoff makes all our nightmares come true in his post-apocalyptic art series that sees freeways shut down, space shuttle burnt out and humans eradicated from the planet.

While we know these images are just images, Shwedoff captures something in each picture that makes your heart race and your palms sweat. We’re reminded that we’re all alone in this world and that when the aliens come to invade our planet (and they will come), we’ll be vulnerable and left to defend ourselves. Or something like that.

Shwedoff hails from Moscow and graduated from the Moscow Academic Art Lyceum of the Russian Academy of Arts in 2008. You can follow his extraordinary artwork on Instagram or Facebook.
