Dave Correia

Dave Correia’s gorgeous oil paintings feature a variety of fantastical hybrid creatures. I love the way he uses color, employing traditionally “pretty” color palettes to depict bizarre (and at times uncomfortable) subject matter.

From the artist bio:
Fascinated by comic books, horror films, and video games as a child, the subjects of Dave’s earliest artistic endeavors were often strange, demonic creatures.

Disturbing, yet grotesquely appealing, these characters and their fictional worlds fueled his imagination and had a strong, significant influence on Dave’s creative style today.
