Bizarre Surreal and Dark Art Pictures

Advertisement

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.

Do have a look at these photos and do not forget to share your comments with us.

    Careful, the Turkish government might get you… :)

    The picture named Darkness is protesting the extreme Islamist attitude of Justice and Development Party, the party which is cruelly ruling our country. The turban is a symbol of Moderate Islam and the light bulb is, well, the logo of JDP. And of course, the dark color shceme is the symbolism for the darkness JDP has brought to our country.

    Btw putting the caption at the same space between the image before and after is very confusing. You scroll a bit and it becomes impossible to tell whether I’m reading a title or a caption. I’m never certain to which image it belongs.

    Eh. All but 3 of those had some sort of human figure in them. I think people could be a bit more creative then make a photo manipulation of hands, eyes, and bodies all the time. Some of the best art I’ve seen is from this guy. http://leminnes.deviantart.com/

    Sure, most see this as art because it has a person in every pic. Why people need this in art? This is maybe eye candy for high-school students. Joel Peter Witkin did this at a fundamentally more thought-provoking way.

    To be honest, I find the photoshop not as impressive as some of the other features you’ve had in the past. There’s a lot of potential for this drama, but this doesn’t seem like a very inspiring collection.

    Had I not known, I probably would have dated many of these photos at 5 or 6 years old (in terms of photshop technique).

    some of these are interesting and well done, others fall into the cliche department, the hands with the butterfly, the fairy, the tim burton knock off and even the lightbulb heads get to that point.

    I agree with what’s been said, some have nice technicals, but lack the truly creative concepts.

    Oh, and whoever said that these are not photoshopped, open your eyes.

    Nice post Aquil.

    My brother Corey (his handle is Coco) is a painter living in Downtown Toronto and does this kind of bizarre, surreal and dark art. His latest painting creeps me out: http://www.flickr.com/photos/rinkjustice/3357069723/?ref=mf

    Wow, absolutly beautiful. I LOVE everything, the vision is great and the feel is wonderful. All the pictures are great and are cleverly executed. It gives you (or at least me) that dream and history image, and I loved it. It just seems so aged and…classy? I dont think that’s the right word, but its familiar, old, and elegant. Again, its PURE beauty.**************

    Artists do tend to experiment, one who I know had a phase where she drew hands with nails through them, even a few feet with nails through them. These were just sketches, she has a lot of dark art, mostly pencil sketches that she’s shown me. I find that her work is a little more expressive than some of this stuff, I can feel the emotion in it.

    For some reason, your works remind me of Gustav Dore’s “Forest of Suicides” woodcut from Dante’s Inferno.They convey the same feeling of darkness and helpless despair, done in a stylized magic realism that is very effective. You are extremely good at what you do.

  115. 118

    Interesting. I think this type of thing is more for the college crowd. Introspective confrontations with someone’s own discovery and self awareness. A bit of insecurity mixed with intellect. It’s the type of art that is the literary equivalent of the one liner. It slaps you in the face but doesn’t really have any lasting impact because the pieces almost always lack depth. It’s like the artist is in a hurry to get the thought down before they lose it. Most share the need to communicate the idea within a broader context that would give it a more lasting impression. I like souls and i will survive but again these concepts lack the layering effect that would make the pieces stronger. The subject matter is centered and in your face. Where’s the sublety in that? Leave some room for discovery for the viewer and engage them, give the viewer the intellectual benefit of the doubt and allow them to ‘peel the onion’.

    I’m not sure how one could view these as “dark” or “mysterious” or even “disturbing”…
    I do, however, enjoy these pieces, but on the grounds that to me, they seem very simple, and to the point. The lack of complexity allows a simpler viewing experience for me, although I did see one piece that was a blatant rip off of Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas, but as for the others, I find them enjoyable, but just fail to see how anyone could think they are by any means “dark”… “though provoking” maybe, but even at that, a pretty big “maybe”… to me these are simply eye candy, because they’re not things you’d typically see on public transit, or ads in magazines… then again, that’s just my opinion, and I’m sure others see it differently, but that’s fine too, because it’s not individual opinion that matters, it’s the over all effect on the whole that will count in the end.

    I also do pencil art. I love the imagination of this artist. I tend to do bizzar drawings and leave the explanation to the observer. This kind of art is very deep and interesting. I love it. You have my vote.

    Turn all these negative remarks into positives. It’s all envy!

    I had to stare at the naked guy. Not cuz I’m gay. Cuz I wondered “why did this man take a naked picture of himself?”

    It forced me to look at it to see why. It took me quite a while to see it. Do you see it? Then I lol’d at how long I’d been staring at a naked guy.
