Life-like Paintings of Imaginary Insects Camouflaged As Japanese Currency and Comic Books

Kama4

Japanese painter Takumi Kama imagines what would happen if natural habitats were destroyed to the point where insects were forced to adapt to entirely urban environments. The “Hide-mushi” is a leaf insect Kama imagines would feed on and hide amongst Japanese currency. The “Comi-mushi” is similarly imagined as taking on the patterns of comic strips in bookstores and convenience stores. See more images below.
