Karl Persson

Karl Persson gives life force to nightmares. I’ve chosen work-safe images, but the gallery on his site contains a collection of twisted, tortured scenes that tap into the deep recesses of the human psyche.

Shock value alone does nothing for me, but Persson manages to capture something primal; sadness, desperation and an imaginative horror that seems to be pulled directly from a bad dream.

If you only love happy, pretty things…beware.

  1. I admire Karl’s works. Especially some of his latest ones. I really like the twisted figure in the bath and the one near a door that is in similar vain. Extremely talented painter.
