Horror Art – the Dystopian surrealism of Zdzisław Beksiński

Zdzisław Beksiński was a Polish artist utilizing paint, photography, and sculpting to relay his visions of dystopian surrealism. He went to school for architecture in Krakow but had no formal study or training in fine art. Beksiński was murdered in 2005, when a teenage acquaintance stabbed him because he refused to lend the young man money. (February, 24, 1929 – February, 21, 2005)

  1. Wow, I had never heard of this guy before, and now I can’t stop looking at these pictures. Hieronymus Bosch meets Boris Vallejo, lol. Deeply disturbing, but like I said, can’t stop looking! 🙂
