One interesting quality of his art is how the common, easily-recognizable objects are transformed and inserted into a wholly alien environment (this being the hallmark of surrealism, for sure), and how the artist never fails to convey his mood and commentary about the real world – all of which remains powerfully imprinted on a viewer’s mind for days to come. Some of the artwork you might have seen in the “Mind Fields” collection (order it here), which even inspired Harlan Ellison to write a few stories. Other art is less known, but just as mind-blowing.

In 1995 Jacek Yerka was awarded the World Fantasy Award for the best artist. His paintings emphasize the uneasy balance between the “industrial” and the “pastoral”, and never fail to touch some deeply hidden strings in the hearts of those who see them.

The other master that recently come to our attention is Stanislav Plutenko. His tagline is “See the extraordinary and make it still more extraordinary”. He tries his hand at interior design, and paints with variety of media: oil, tempera, acrylic, watercolour (supplemented with some airbrushing and glazing with clear paints). His art is currently exhibited throughout Europe, and his website contains works of various genres and styles.

Art is a thing that attracts almost every individual. Today we would like to share with you two different but very interesting mediums of art which are called as Surreal and Dark Art. These types of art are quite different from other conventional mediums of art. In these medium, artist conveys his thought and imagination in a very mysterious but somewhat fantastic or I should say in a bizarre style.
I personally like these types of arts as they express the most beautiful and positive aspects of life. Artist has much room in these types of art to motivate your life, to inspire you and to bring happiness and positivity in your life. So, here’s the collection of most momentous and conceptually imaginative surreal and dark art works.
