These Melancholy Illustrations Perfectly Capture The Predicament Of Existence

NemO's is an Italian artist with a flair for the unusual. His child-like images tell stories of a serious and earnest nature.

These are dark comics for lonely adults.

In this series, NemO, explores questions related to self-identity. Titled "Who is NemO’s", the cartoons feature characters are stripped naked and analyzed. This is a self-portrait by a guy whose name literally means "no one" in Latin. Of course the illustrations are going to be sad.

I have always liked the idea of calling myself with a name that means “no one”, that makes my work even more mysterious.

"When I began drawing on walls in the streets I needed to find a name for myself, better known as a “Tag” that would allow me to be part of this new world. I decided that name would be Nemo," the artist explains.

"Nemo like the captain from “Twenty thousand leagues under the sea”, who fought battles against the war, the injustices in the world and the silences of the sea. Nemo like the main character from one of Winsor McKay’s first comic strips, in which he narrates the nightmares this boy has every night about amazing adventures in a fantastic kingdom called Slumberland. Last but not least Nemo like the latin word for “no one”.

"I have always liked the idea of calling myself with a name that means “no one”, that makes my work even more mysterious," he concludes.
