Horrifying And Surreal Paintings From The Twisted Mind of Chris Mars

 

Chris Mars packs his compositions with awesome texture and gruesome characters. With Todd Schorr levels of craftsmanship and imagination, these paintings warrant long viewing sessions. But good luck spending any extended amount of time among them without getting sufficiently creeped out. A lot more images at the artist’s website, which also features a soundtrack and in-depth writing from Mars on his sources of inspiration.

    I saw this work in Paris last Spring and it is all the more striking in person. It literally looks 3 dimensional – people were stooping before them to see whether or not the painting surface was flat. Amazing technique supporting a truly humanist vision. Thank you for highlighting this gifted artist.
