We can't look away from these engaging felt and paper compositions by Japanese artist Takeru Toyokura. A bit nostalgic and very surreal, each dynamic and intricate piece evokes a child's engagement with the world, through play or experience, but with a very dark twist. From fantastic cityscapes to dangerous escapades, we're fascinated by Toyokura's interpretation of childhood fantasy and reality. Visit his website to see more images from all four series: Children Scene, Children Wonder, Japanese Mind, and Children Revolution and check out his Behance page for a step-by-step reveal of his unique process.
