Still that Hot Topic t-shirt wearing, angst-ridden, middle school kid at heart? Kraken Kahn’s art is just for you.


Who: Ricardo Garcia, known as Kraken Kahn, is a visual artist and art director from Mexico City.

Why You Should Follow Him: He envisions some pretty epic and scary images- some of his characters make Samara from The Ring look like a Girl Scout. Although most of his depictions are haunting and dark, they come with a dash of romanticism (red lips, colored flowers) that keep you looking for more. He also posts photos of cute cats. And we will always love cute cats.
