At any given moment, hundreds of kitschy-cute "kawaii" art shows are taking place in Tokyo's sprawling maze of backstreet galleries, but the antidote to all that can be found at the appropriately-named GALERIA DE MUERTE in Ueno, where Japan's reigning gore artist TOSHIHIRO EGAWA's work is currently on display. Having created literally hundreds of album covers for international death metal bands with names like Guttural Engorgement, Vomit Remnants, Internal Suffering, and Purulent Infection, Egawa fabricates his bloody CG terror-scapes for maximum shock value, and rarely falls short of the mark. In fact, the majority of the artist's work is so graphic we're exercising a rare modicum of good judgment by not showing it here. Brave souls have until October 21st (what, no special Halloween nite closing party?!?) to catch the splatter fest in person, while more timid armchair warriors can catch a frightful glimpse of the show here:
