Mischievous humor, condensed stories: Rory Midhani from Berlin
Rory Midhani tells stories with wickedly fun, dramatic plots condensed in a single page. Some of his stories are coquettish and flirty while others are more reminiscent of black comedy. We love how his images are polycausal, with dozens of narratives all crammed into one single illustration! At first his images seem soft and easy on the eye but a closer look reveals all sorts of vices, naughty details and the occasional disquieting scenes (use the zoom in tool on the details!).
