Spotted! Djohan Hanapi

Today’s black and white saucy illustrations will probably slap your momma square in the face, leave your papa hot under the collar and stalk your little brother for a week or more.

Freelance Illustrator Djohan Hanapi is the man responsible for the illustrations, a Visual Communication graduate from the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts, with a bizarre perception of fairytale characters and their private vices.

“My works often feature an unexpected imposition of eroticism that may make our mothers blush. Particularly intriguing to me is how fairy tales have so much macabre and gruesome innuendoes beneath all that purity and innocence depicted; much like how our seemingly functional society is riddled with scum and vermin. Inspired by this incongruity, I weave bondage and sadomasochism into images of all-too-familiar fairytale characters.”
