The dark, gothic and surreal paintings by Yaroslav Gerzhedovich

Russian artist Yaroslav Gerzhedovich mixes photography, digital post-production (photoshop) and paintwork to create his fantastic and dark art pieces. In this post, let's focus on his paintings.

It doesn't matter if they are photo-based or painting-based. Gerzhedovich's illustrations are dark and gothic. They seem extracted from dark corners of the worst nightmares, where there is barely a thin light, where invisible eyes are constantly and secretly watching you, where gods or other ancient beigns play carelessly with the life of mortals, generally driving them crazy.

  1. Magnificent work. These images speak to me of JRR Tolkien's "Silmarillion" more than any other I have ever seen, and I have been reading the book for more than 30 years and looking at Tolkien-inspired art for more than that.
    BEAUTIFUL! Thank you.
