Artists and the Apocalypse

Today I came across the Polish artist Zdzisław Beksiński (1929-2005) who produced apocalyptic/hell like paintings reminiscent of film concepts. They are incredibly dark in their subject matter and I love how he uses simple colour schemes and organic textures to portray horror.

I will be adding this artist to my scrapbook/visual research for future inspiration.
