ABOUT DARK INSPIRATION II

 

Fascination and fear for the unknown and uncontrollable in life has been a recurring theme in art. That mystical feeling often leads to a strong internal urge to explore the depths of human souls. To artists, the uncharted territories set no boundaries for imagination. What seems to be an eerie, apocalyptic world is only a truthful reflection of actuality in these artists’ mind.

 

Tapping into the uncanny domain of grotesqueries and the occult, Dark Inspiration II is a rich profusion of bone-chilling art created by more than 50 artists worldwide. Childhood reveries, aged folklore and mysteries, and morbid fascination with death and mental pain juxtapose to examine mortal sins, existence and human relationships with the universe. Encompassing illustrations, sculptures, installations, photography and set design, the sensuous collection carries forward the ritual of its first volume to amass a variety of dark and mournful expressions that are at once alluring, bewildering and inspirational to peruse.
