Today I give you the dark, mysterious creations of Checanty. Here’s a little something for your nightmares:
I’ve seen Kamille Freske’s described as “ethereal,” but something about it reminds me of some vintage pulp horror art (which, for me, is a great thing).
Art is the ultimate escape for me. It allows me to leave this world for hours, and truly make my dreams come alive. I never grew out of the childhood stage of playing pretend. I am constantly daydreaming, and creating worlds and alternative realities inside my mind.
If only illustrator, comic and poster artist Michael Hacker would paint my washing machine! What a perfect vision this would be upon opening the laundry closet doors.
His two dimensional art is full of fun, lowbrow goodness, too.
Finding information on Russian surrealist painter Aleksandr Kosteckij is no easy task. Perhaps there are simply no English websites with pertinent details.

Juli Adams has made me wonder what it would be like to have a floating manatee as a pet. I would give him plenty of air to flap around in. I think it could work out.
In her work we can see magical echoes of her past, growing up in a secluded area where the surrounding land held many secrets (I love how she cites the outdoors as a personified character that helped shape her).
Things are hectic non-blogular real life, but I want to share this terrific image by Damian Majcherek.
He looks mildly puzzled that his guts are all over the forest floor. Isn’t it the perfect blend of glowing, ethereal fantasy land and evisceration?
He uses the term “Biofusion” to describe some of his series’, which I think should be universally embraced to describe the magnificent contemporary art offerings that involve the mingling of flora, fauna and natural/manmade structures. Doesn’t it work nicely?
From the artist bio:
His art, speaks to the old etchings and engravings of religious and occult manuscripts, flirts with alchemy, witchcraft and blasphemy. It is at the same time disturbing, haunting and stimulating. His intricate drawings, full of enigmatic detail, mix sensuality, darkness and mythology. The message beyond the lines are sibylline, surrounding the world of DZO with mystery and fascination.
