Horror, Morbid and Mystic Art Pictures

Advertisement

It is true that art communicates what words can not and art is the language that communicates with the soul. Morbid art stands for works that illustrate a very deathly and deathlike mood. It has many variations starting from its gore scenes to its dark and depressed atmosphere – and sometimes its daydreams, night screams, corpses and horrifying imagery.

As such, it has some similarties with the mystic art that is also quite “charismatic” in terms of its themes and motifs. The beauty of mystic art is the simple fact that it captures your attention at the very first glance, provides you with the imagery of something that doesn’t exist, looks surreal or even bizarre and hence impresses you in a very mystifying way.

In this post we present some amazing examples of morbid and mystic art. Hopefully, you’ll love some of them or at least will find them creative or inspirational. Please explore the further works of the artists linked below and also feel free to suggest other artworks in the comments to this post.

Death is an angel with two faces: To us he turns / A face of terror, blighting all things fair; / The other burns / With glory of the stars, and love is there.

    I too am a designer, and not very good at it. But I want to be better, which is why I am here.

    I agree with the critique going around, hope you’re not offended. Anyone can do an inspiration posts: just type in the adjectives, and your search engine of choice will be able to provide the fix. I could suggest maybe a more proactive approach. Instead of showing us a gallery, why not present how these were done instead? Or a group of sites dedicated to “so and so topic/adjective/line of thinking” with “chockful of details on how/why/what/where so and so” was done/used. It’s like playing billiards – thinking three balls ahead instead of focusing on just hitting one.

    While I am glad that these were brought to my attention, some of these artworks (can kiss Dave McKean’s ass, that’s for sure) make me tick. Blood and Death does not a pretty “OMG-fucking-brilliant-horror!” picture make. I’d appreciate it more if it were an expert on the subject who’s doing this post (no offense, Aquil — I speak to all inspiration post authors. ESPECIALLY THAT ONE WHO POSTED THE COMIC/CARTOON POST).

    Thank you.

    I really like the piece titled Bloodbath. I am looking for CD cover art for my band’s new release. Will you sell this piece or possibly sell other artwork? Do you do custom work?
    Please let me know where you stand. Thank you

    Post 31, I was literally JUST looking through her site.
    I seriously loved the majority of her work.
    Definitely a lot of sexual and feminist views in her work, which I love.
    And if y’all like that, y’all would definitely love Chelsea Lewyta’s work.
    But, I really didn’t fancy the majority of these.

    All very amateur quality work. It’s good enough to impress teenagers and twilight vampire fanboys, but none of this is going to impress any serious art collector, gallery, or critic.
