A Glimpse at Post-Apocalyptic Tokyo
In the future, long after human civilization has been vanquished and replaced with atomic-sized cockroaches, the great landscapes that were once monuments to civilization’s triumphs will fall apart and slowly decay. Or at least that’s what people think of when the words “post-apocalyptic” come to mind.
These paintings, by DeviantArt user tokoyogenso, show what Tokyo will look like in the future long after humans have been wiped out by World War 3, bird flu and aliens. The paintings are so detailed they look like they could be screenshots from a depressing anime. The artist creates the pieces by painting over existing photographs of real buildings (obviously without the damage). The result is an eerily beautiful window into our bleak, inevitable future.
