Polish Artist Paints His Nightmares And It's Terrifying
Polish-based artist, Zdzisław Beksiński, may be deceased today but his infamous artwork lives on in his name and we couldn't be more mesmerized. Well known for his "dystopian surrealism paintings," Zdzislaw's work was always featuring dark, nightmarish, and post-apocalyptic imagery capable of sending chills down your spine and shaking you to your core.
Even more terrifying to think about is certainly what he was quoted describing his inspiration:
I wish to paint in such a manner as if I were photographing dreams.
What matters is what appears in your soul, not what your eyes see and what you can name.
What horrifying dreams these must have been to exist so vividly in his mind and be re-created for all to enjoy... or fear.
The paintings feature every day and commonly seen objects and creatures with horrifying twists. The work sucks you in and won't let you leave unless you planned on leaving with nightmares of your own in hand.
Every single one of these 19 works of devastating art will surely linger in your mind and weigh heavily.
There is only one true result.via:Zdzisław Beksiński
