Zdzislaw Beksinski - A new discovery!

Zdzisław Beksiński (Polish pronunciation: [ˈzd͡ʑiswaf bɛkˈɕiɲski]; 24 February 1929 – 21 February 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, nightmarish environment. The second style is more abstract, being dominated by form, and is typified by Beksiński's later paintings. Beksiński was murdered in 2005.   


 People will always assume that people who created dark imagery must be mentally disturbed and unhappy. Although Beksiński's art was often grim, he himself was known to be a pleasant person who took enjoyment from conversation and had a keen sense of humor.  I believe that people who are in tune with the darker elements of life and don’t fear it are generally more at peace within themselves.
