The illustrations at Tokyo Candies are like a candy-coated dream, suggesting stories that are not quite of this world. With an extreme mix of opposite concepts, Rubens Cantuni has shaped an unorthodox collection of bold vector illustrations that are visually intriguing. It is this contrast of cute and evil that makes his work so appealing. Of course, the sexy, chubby girls are his most identifiable characters thus far. The point is to arouse a feeling of surprise, curiosity or hilarity in the spectator. If you look at one of his works, and you think “Why? Why is it like that?,” then he has made his point.
