Zdzislaw Beksiński

'Zdzisław Beksiński (1929 – 2005) was a renowned Polish painter, photographer, and sculptor who is best known as a fantasy artist. Beksiński executed his paintings and drawings either in what he called a 'Baroque' or a 'Gothic' manner. The first style is dominated by representation, with the best-known examples coming from his 'fantastic realism' period when he painted disturbing images of a surrealistic, post-apocalyptic environment. The second style is more abstract, being dominated by form, and is typified by Beksiński's later paintings. Beksiński was murdered in 2005.
On 21 February 2005, Beksiński was found dead in his flat in Warsaw with 17 stab wounds on his body'

Some amazing paintings picked by me.

Thanks for the comments.

I'm glad you like Beksiński, he's definitely one of my favorites. I'd forgotten he was murdered though it does sort of seem in theme with his paintings...
