Victionary, January 2023. Hardcover. New. Item #299767
At long last the bestselling Dark Inspiration series will be available again, this time in a single volume, combining the best of macabre art from the original two volumes with an assortment of all new projects. From depictions of our most primal fears to scenes of death and injury, the featured work provokes viewers to confront the demons that haunt us all. Some appear as nightmare visions dreamt and hopefully forgotten, others are unexplainable tableaus, sure to alarm and disturb. All are fascinating. In a variety of media including digital and hand rendered illustration, sculpture, photography and more. Publishing on the advent of Victionary's 20th Anniversary.
Although it is human nature to tiptoe around the uncomfortable, some artists are inspired by the unsettling to create intriguing works of art that push the boundaries of normality and provoke viewers into exploring their fears and taboos. There are also others who use them as springboards of the imagination to express their innermost feelings and question the often-grim realities of existence. In conjunction with Victionary's 20th anniversary, the new edition of Dark Inspiration combines most of the projects from the first two bestselling titles of the same name along with new work into one meaty celebration of the macabre. Featuring chilling depictions of childhood reveries, folklore, mysteries, and death in a variety of styles and interpretations, each project serves unconventionally as a celebration of life in all its gruesome glory.
