This Polish Artist “Photographed Desires” And Made Them Into Work That Will Give You Nightmares


Allow us to take you on a journey by way of the curious thoughts of a Polish artist, Zdzisław Beksiński, who made a reputation for himself together with his dystopian surrealism work, crammed with post-apocalyptic imagery and nightmarish creatures.

The artist is now not with us to higher clarify the huge roster of over 300 of his works, however he used to say: “I want to paint in such a way as if I have been photographing goals.” And that’s precisely what popped into my head once I first noticed his work. Even, although, they make the most of recognizable on a regular basis objects, these are paired and organized in methods solely the dream world might maintain in a single image.

These unseen combos gave start to mind-bending eventualities, which do construct an anxious feeling whereas them. The paintings is superbly summary, but it does have the facility to invoke actual world references, which makes it even creepier. The artist’s rationalization? Effectively, it could lie in these cryptic phrases: “What issues is what seems in your soul, not what your eyes see and what you’ll be able to title.”
