Beautiful art

I have recently discovered the artist Mark Ryden and wanted to share my discovery with you guys. The thing I really like about his paintings is the mixture of beautiful innocence and a somewhat darker vibe that is apparent in the background. The faces of the girls in the paintings are childlike and innocent resembling that of a porcelain doll, which is a stark contrast to the dark undertones such as mysterious figures in the background, tears of blood or a meat dress (move over lady gaga).

I know I am kind of late to the Mark Ryden party but my favourite paintings are:

  • Incarnation
  • General Sherman
  • The Tree of life
  • Clear Hearts, Grey Flowers
  • and of course Santa Worm

Check out his work here, I would really love to know what you think and which ones are your favourites.
